Great North Road - The Convict Trail


The Great North Road is a 240 km convict built masterpiece constructed between 1826 an 1836 to provide an overland route from Sydney to Newcastle and the Hunter Valley. It was — and remains — an extraordinary feat of engineering as it traverses sandstone gorges, razorback ridges and towering passes. Much of the original convict built road remains in use today although a lot of the original surface is well buried under bitumen.
