Wisemans Ferry is such a historical place to visit, this history extends to a magnificent Road that was built between the years 1826 to 1836 called “Great North Road”. It was built to connect Sydney with Newcastle and the Upper Hunter Valley in NSW Australia. The Road environs and associated convict era heritage was built by convict labour often working in irons.
Its such a wonderful experience to do with the whole family, children will be blown away by the history of this Road. There are many entries to the convict trail, one of them is only approx 20 Minutes from Del Rio Resort.
