Wollombi’s Historical Attractions
The area now occupied by Wollombi village was a significant meeting point on the north-south trade and travel route for coastal Aboriginal peoples. Many traces of the original inhabitants survive throughout the valley, and can be viewed at sites such as Finchley Trig and Devil’s Rock.
Wollombi at the Great North Road junction was established as the administrative centre of the district in the 1830s. Many well-preserved buildings remain in the Wollombi village and surrounding area, as well as remnants of the Great North Road. Take the Historic Wollombi walk or follow the Convict Trail to experience some of Wollombi’s convict history.
