Summary: The Great South Road was built to allow the distribution of wool, tallow, hides and other products to Sydney docks from Campbelltown and Picton and beyond. The route chosen was over the Razorback Range, a jagged range with steep cliffs and rocky spurs, an unstable, porous sandstone base that shifts and lurches with heavy rain. A nightmare for the convicts who built it and the travellers forced to endure its horrors for a hundred years. These are the stories of the people who travelled and worked or lived on this road - migrants, teamsters, tramps, gold escorts, toiling convicts and bushrangers who terrorised settlers and travellers alike. It is history brought to life over a century of endeavour.
