Convict Trail Project, Caring for the Great North Road – New South Wales

The Convict Trail Project is a volunteer organisation which protects, preserves and promotes the Great North North Road which extends north from Sydney to the Hunter Valley. The Convict Trail follows the route of the 240 km Great North Road, built between 1826 and 1836 by re-offending convicts who were put to work on one of 19th century’s greatest engineering feats in Australia.
This comprehensive site includes a detailed history of the road; details of convict life and construction details. There is a database of 1,352 convicts which includes ship and date of arrival plus details of work parties and dates related to the convict gangs and bridge parties.
