This challenging circuit walk on designated fire trails is ideal for us adventurous bushwalkers who love to test themselves. The Dubbo Gully and Ten Mile Hollow Circuit combines several fire trails that lead through rugged and remote bushland and includes a section of the Old Great North Road built by convicts between 1826 -1836. Starting at Mangrove Mountain, we wind our way through Dubbo Gully, passing open fields and the historic St Thomas Cemetery and the historic Fairview Homestead.  Reaching the entrance to Dharug National Park we then head to Ten Mile Hollow Campground for a rest and relax over lunch.  From the campground we will connect with the Old Great North Road to Clares Bridge (the second oldest bridge on the mainland) and from here we then take the Donny’s Track Fire Trail which then loops us back onto the Dubbo Gully Track and back to our starting point. Own transport required for this activity and/or carpool from Hornsby Station. When registering please provide your membership number and mobile phone number.
