While not heritage listed, the single lane Koplicks wooden bridge which crossed Tallebudgera Creek along Tallebudgera Connection Road is a visible sign of the rural nature of the valley and can be accessed from Scotty Logan Lane. In the 1980's, this bridge was the only crossing of the creek along Tallebudgera Connection Road and being one way, drivers had to give way to everyone heading north. The road has now been upgraded with a large 2 lane bridge but the old timber bridge has been kept and the area around it has been replanted with native species providing a delightful spot on the river.
