Great Western Walk

Image 1

Four years ago, Dr David Goldney asked fellow ecologist, Wyn Jones to be involved in creating the Great Western Walk across the World Heritage Listed Blue Mountains from Emu Ford on the Nepean River at Emu Plains to Bathurst, NSW.

It is a 200 km walk that follows (as near as possible), the 1814-1815 Cox’s Road, commissioned by Governor Lachlan Macquarie and built by William Cox and his team of convicts over 6 months.

David Goldney’s publication, “Cox’s Road Dreaming Guide Book”, produced in 2015 by David and Greening Bathurst, which won the 2017 Chifley Heritage Award in May, is still being distributed widely and the sub-title is “History With Your Boots On”.

A draft brochure is attached and this will be updated when the final brochure has been produced.
