Historic buildings from the gold rush era
Hill End is located in the central west of New South Wales, around 77km from Bathurst (via Turondale) and around 72 km from Mudgee. It was proclaimed an historic site in 1967 and is looked after by the National Parks and Wildlife Service as an example of a well-preserved gold mining ghost town. Almost all of the remaining buildings date back to the boom years of Hill End in the 1870's.
The Hill End Historic Buildings Open Day will be held on 3rd May 2015, from 9.30am - 3.30pm. At this event you can view up to 10 historic buildings in the village. They will include the Royal Hotel (1872), the grand historic residence of Craigmoor (1875), miners cottages, churches and artists homes.
Bookings are required. For further information visit hillend.org
