Follow the Convict Trail – The Great North Road is a 240km masterpiece built by the convicts in early 1800’s to provide an overland route from Sydney to Newcastle. It was, and remains, an “extraordinary feat of engineering” traversing through sandstone gorges, razorback ridges and towering passes. Drive along the road or walk through Dharug and Yengo National Parks and find remains of stone retaining walls, pick dressed cuttings, culverts, bridges and stone cut drains.
The more energetic can go bushwalking, mountain bike riding, canyoning and abseiling in the Blue Mountain and Wollemi National Parks. Float down the river on an inflatable lilo and admire the inaccessible gorges nearby, or you can walk, swim, picnic, canoe, kayak or fish along the Hawkesbury, Colo or Grose Rivers.
