Hawkesbury City Council

Hawkesbury City Council is proud to be a major sponsor of the Convict 100.

The Hawkesbury is a special place. It is 2,800 square kilometres with a population of 65, 000. There are 64 towns and villages all of which have very different identities, communities, connections and stories to tell. The Hawkesbury has natural
beauty around the river and its tributaries, mountains, national parks, wilderness areas and heritage towns.

What better way to explore everything the Hawkesbury has to offer than by visiting historic St Albans in May and riding the trails of the Convict 100!


Mountain Culture Beer Co

Mountain Culture Beer Co is back partnering with the Convict 100 again in 2024 as a major sponsor.

Mountain Culture opened in 2019 to produce really good beer. From their roots in Katoomba in the (beautiful) Blue Mountains, Mountain Culture now has two venues – Katoomba Brewpub and The Factory @ Emu Plains.

They release over 100 limited release beers each year along with their core range. You can find Mountain Culture’s core range wherever you buy good beer, including Dan Murphy’s, Liquorland, BWS and all good indies.

Oh, and their flagship beer, Status Quo, won the #1 beer in Australia (!) in the GABS Hottest 100.
