Overview

Highlights

Discover life during the gold rush at Hill End Historic Site. Explore heritage buildings and mine relics. You can camp out or stay in heritage accommodation.

Step back in time at Hill End Historic Site and discover the enduring legacy of colonial New South Wales and the roaring early days of the gold rush. Explore the town on a self-guided tour starting at the Hill End Visitor Centre and museum. You’ll find streetscapes and buildings little changed since the village’s 1870s goldmining heyday.

Join a tour of impressive Craigmoor House for an intriguing peek into the past, try your luck gold panning at the Fossicking Ground, and experience the subterranean world of a colonial goldminer on a guided tour of Bald Hill Tourist Mine. Spend a couple of days uncovering the layers of history at this remarkable site, home to a thriving community and artists’ retreat.
