Connecting People by Celebrating History and Heritage

(L-R) Cessnock City Council Clr Darrin Gray and Mayor Bob Pynsent, Hornsby Shire Council Clr Nathan Tilbury, Convict Trail Project Director Glynn Jacobs and the cast from Convict Footprints Productions who added some convict mayhem to the days proceedings to the enjoyment of all who attended.

The Convict Trail Project joined in the festivities of the Wollombi Colonial and Indigenous Fair launching their new website and the update of the Cartoscope Great North Road – Convict Trail Map. The new website makes the wealth of information held within the site just one easy search away for visitors. The new Itinerary pages will help to highlight key heritage features of significance along the convict Trail.

The map was designed to encourage more people to visit the 240km stretch of the Great North Roadshowing places they could visit along this amazing slice of nationally significant road. The maps can be found at Visitor Information outlets sites and historic societies along the length of the road.

The Convict Trail Project also gratefully acknowledges assistance from Yancoal and the Mount Thorley Warkworth Great North Road Conservation Fund, who provide resourcing for the Convict Trail Project.
