Devines Hill – Meeting at the car park Wisemans Ferry Park
Located within the Dharug National Park, Devines Hill has a lot to look at. Guided by Historian Elizabeth Roberts, our tour will see us walk up a gentle gradient leading to spectacular stone walling, culverts, quarries, buttresses, chiselled and blasted rock faces, hand hewn drains and Hangmans Cave. Hear about the Convicts that worked the Road and how it was built.
