Wisemans Ferry ConvictsPrint Page Print this page

Commemorates Convicts and Early History.

From the late 1700's British criminals were transported to Australia as punishment for their crimes. The sentences were often periods of hard Labour where male convicts were allocated to gangs to construct the infrastructure of the new Australian colony. In the Wisemans Ferry region the men were assigned to road gangs which were used to construct the Great North Road. The Great North Road is one of Australia's greatest engineering feats and runs from Sydney to the Hunter Valley.
