3 Day Exploration of the old Hume Highway

Wednesday, 19 June 2024 to Friday, 21 June 2024
9:00am - 3:00pm

Old Hume Highway

Our event for June is an exploration of sections of the Old Hume Highway that are still used today by motorists as everyday roads.

The drive is designed to provide you with ample time to discover interesting historic towns, villages, and hamlets.


Here is a link to the history of the Great Southern Road Hume Highway History


As quoted by Asa Wahlquist in her article in a 1996 Sydney Morning Herald column, "Take a byway, not a highway"


Our event will start on Wednesday 19th June at the Curry Reserve Parking Area, Camden Valley Road, Narellen. Meeting at 9.00am

Members living in the Southern Highlands can join as we pass through Mittagong and other towns in the region.


The first night stop, Wednesday, is at Yass.

The third day, Friday, is your trip home.
