The Don River Bridge is a road bridge over the Don River on the Leichhardt Highway near Rannes, Queensland, Australia. It is a low-level timber bridge which is prone to flooding.

Three new concrete bridges are planned on a new and improved alignment of a 13 km section of the Leichhardt Highway over the Don River, Windmill Creek and Log Creek as part of the $65 million Don River Bridges Project. When completed the higher bridges will improve flood immunity of this important rural highway.

Construction of the new bridges is expected to start by the end of 2011 and be completed in mid-2013.[1]
