The Great North Road

I must have been living under a mushroom because I didn't know that Australia's convict built  Great North Road had been included on  UNESCO's World Heritage list.

I was alerted to this by a post on this Hawkesbury Family History Group's Facebook page that announced " Old Great North Road World Heritage Listing Celebration on Sat 16 April at Wisemans Ferry Park (near Ferry crossing) Celebrations include free guided tours of Old Great North Rd, children’s activities, info stalls, actors & BBQ."

The Australian Heritage Week Page lists a similar event for 17th April  so anyone who is intending joining in the festivities should make contact with them before making the journey to The Hawkesbury.

More information on the Great North Road can be found on the website of The Convict Trail Project.
