BUSINESS DESCRIPTION

This trail follows the corridor of the first fully constructed road from Sydney to the Hunter Valley, through scenery that is much as it was in the 19th century. The Great North Road was built with convict labour between 1826 and 1836 and substantial sections of it still survive. It is included in a suite of convict sites throughout Australia being investigated for World Heritage nomination.
