What is significant? The McIntyre's Creek Bridge at Tabor is a single track 23 span rail bridge built for the Penshurst-Hamilton Railway in 1890 to a standard Victorian Railways fifteen feet transverse-deck timber-beam design. The deck length is 105 metres, and maximum height is 3.66 metres. All timber piers are of the original vertical-two-pile design, each having two simple cross-braces. McIntyre's Creek Bridge is the only substantial surviving timber trestle bridge from this line, which closed in 1977.
How is it significant? The McIntyre's Creek Bridge at is of technical and historical significance to the State of Victoria.
Why is it significant? The McIntyre's Creek Bridge, is of technical significance as an unmodified standard design rail bridge with twenty-three timber-beam rail spans each of fifteen feet (4.57 metres), supported entirely by vertical two-pile timber piers. This design was commonplace in the early 20th century with bridges where spans were less than ten feet, but no other substantial example of this type survives unmodified in Victoria today. It is also unique in Victoria as the only surviving substantial timber-beam rail bridge to completely retain its original vertical-two-pile timber-pier design
The McIntyre's Creek Bridge is historically significant as the only substantial surviving artifact from the Koroit-Hamilton Railway, having been originally built in 1890 for a Penshurst-Hamilton branch-line off the (short-lived) Koroit-Dunkeld Railway.
