4. Shepherds Gully
(1-2 hours) 9 km from the main ferry landing, on the road to St Albans, a track branches to the right. Shepherds Gully road gradually ascends the hill and after about 15 minutes walking, the remains of a small bridge can be seen in the gully below the road. Here you have the choice of continuing along Shepherds Gully or taking the 1830s Sternbecks Gully Road which follows the other side of the gully. Although somewhat overgrown and eroded, it reveals examples of early stone walling, construction styles and colonial graffiti. Sternbecks Gully Road and Shepherds Gully Road merge again about 100 metres below the gate at the top of Devines Hill. The Shepherds Gully and Sternbecks Gully roads make an ideal circular walk. They follow a cool rainforest gully, making them enjoyable on warmer days.
