Reminds me of a Poem by Dorothea Mackeller (1877)
(I'll post the second verse only)

My Country

I love a sunburnt country,
A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges,
Of droughts and flooding rains.
I love her far horizons,
I love her jewel-sea,
Her beauty and her terror
The wide brown land for me!

Was the bridge damaged or not?

Looking at the photo, it certainly appears to be intact. There is debris piled on top of it and it may or may not have some damage, but it looks intact to me.

All that debris is about to be washed off with the next round of flooding from ex-Cyclone Nora. River rises already reported in the region.
