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.
