The Prince Albert Bridge is adjacent to the Adelaide Zoo and crosses over the city’s famous Torrens River. A timber bridge was constructed in 1859, west of the current bridge, and named the Old Frome Bridge. The current bridge was named after Prince Albert, later King Edward VII, and opened in his presence on 7 May 1879.

The wrought iron structure is made from three parallel, scalloped girders that were manufactured in England.

It is 120 feet (36.6 m) long with a cantilevered span of 60 feet (18 m). The bridge is 43 feet (13 m) wide and originally had a timber deck, which was replaced with concrete in 1922.
