The Convict Trail Project



The Convict Trail Project  was initiated in the early 1990’s by the Bucketty and Wollombi communities, since then many groups who have the same interest in the project including conservation, management and promotion of the Great North Road  have join the Convict Trail Project.

Funding the Project has always come from Grants, In-kind donations and voluntary efforts.

The CTP engages in a diverse range of activities and services that are centred round promoting, conserving and providing interpretation to our national heritage “The Great North Road” for the enjoyment of all present and future generations.

Our Mission Statement represents and embodies our overarching goal in providing these activities and services and is simply expressed as “Caring for the Great North Road”.
