O'Shannassy Aqueduct Trail - Cement Creek Rd to the Weir - 7.6 km
Access to this entry point is at a car park at the end of Cement Creek Rd, from the Woods
This is a badly potholed road, and care is needed in 2WD vehicles. In winter, pools of water
across the road make driving difficult. It passes the Heritage Pine Plantation.
The trail continues on its merry way 7.6 km to the O'Shannassy Weir, the end of the journey.
East of the Cement Creek junction the aqueduct is buried pipe, and some of this is visible
along the edge of the track. A caretaker's hut and storage room is found about 1 km out, which is the start of the open channel.
This hut is well preserved, and contains a fireplace, chairs, tables, and some furnishings!
From this point, the track passes through tall forest, reaching the weir precinct.
This is a long 7.6 km stretch and there are no intermediate public access points. Various
structures still exist along its length, including small storage huts.
