Old Convict Road Orford - Walk

Old Convict Road, Orford - Walk
Beginning immediately after crossing the bridge at Orford, the Old Convict Road trail follows the northern side of the Prosser River for 1km. This flat and easily accessible trail highlights rugged examples of Convict manual labour and structural ingenuity. Build between 1841 and 1855, this stretch of terraced road was used to service the Probation Station in Buckland now in ruins at the end of the track. Taking no longer than ond hour to complete, this walk is a worthy addition to other local day walks such as the Three Thumbs Track.
