Old Great North Road Bike Ride

Mountain bike or walk the Old Great North Road. It’s an important piece of Australia’s history and part of the Convict Sites of Australia World Heritage Area.

Dharug National Park contains part of the 43 kilometre stretch of the convict-built Old Great North Road. Built between 1826 and 1836, it contains the oldest surviving stone bridges in mainland Australia, including Clares Bridge and Circuit Flat Bridge.

If you plan to walk the road, it’s best to allow two to three days for the whole track, although you can break it up into shorter sections for an easier walk. You can also ride the road - allow about a day to do so. There are plenty of places to stop along the way for a rest, birdwatching or picnicking.
