Starting at Mangrove Mountain, you’ll wind through Dubbo Gully passing open fields and a historic old cemetery. Arriving at Old Great North Road, look for Clares Bridge, the second oldest bridge on the mainland.
With a flat grassy area Ten Mile Hollow campground is a nice spot for a picnic lunch along the way, or you might be tempted to pitch your tent and spend a night under the stars.
