Fernances: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Convict Trail Project Bucketty Site


Bucketty Site is a bypassed loop of the 1830 convict built Great North Road. There are many elements of the original convict road, culverts, the remains of a bridge, walling, road surface, side cutting and square cut drains all within three hundred metres. This is an excellent historical walk.

There is information provided on the site, picnic tables are available and the site has part disabled access. Toilets can be found five kilometres away at the Mogo Campsite. To get to Mogo Campsite you drive along an unaltered section of the Great North Road and experience the isolation of the 1830s.

To access the Convict Trail at Bucketty, take the Peats Ridge exit from the Sydney/Newcastle expressway, proceed to Peats Ridge and then follow George Downes Drive for 29 kilometres to the intersection with St Albans Road.

The Great North Road


The Great North Road, surveyed in 1825 and completed in 1836, was constructed using convict labour. Up to 720 convicts - some in chains - worked on the road, which spanned 264 km, connecting Sydney to the settlements of the Hunter Valley. It features spectacular and beautifully preserved examples of stonework, including buttresses, culverts, bridges and twelve metre high retaining walls.

Only 43 kilometres of the road remains undeveloped and relatively intact. Running through and alongside Dharug National Park and Yengo National Park, this section has been named the Old Great North Road. It goes from Wisemans Ferry in the south to Mount Manning (near Bucketty) in the north, and includes the oldest surviving stone bridges in mainland Australia. The road is closed to motor vehicles, but makes a great walk over two or three days - or an exhilarating day's cycle.
