Stylish heritage accommodation
Step back in time to the gold rush with a stay at the beautifully-renovated 1870s Post Office Residence, Hosies Store or the Pines. Soak up the grand colonial style whilst enjoying modern comforts and exploring the fascinating Hill End village.
Once a haberdashery store and residence, Hosies has been lovingly transformed into Hill End accommodation that will appeal to solo travellers, groups, families and friends. Located in the heart of town, a country getaway at Hosies combines modern comforts with the atmosphere of a bygone era. Choose from seven comfortable bedrooms with shared facilities. Built in 1872, this handsomely restored single-story residence is a great country getaway for families or small groups.
The Post Office
Located in the village, a short stroll from Hill End Heritage Centre, the Post Office Residence combines grand colonial style with modern convenience. Enjoy a peaceful night's rest in one of the three attractively decorated bedrooms, sleeping up to six guests. Wake up refreshed for a relaxing breakfast in your guest kitchen, before stepping out to delve into Hill End’s many attractions.
During the day, visit Hill End Heritage Centre for an insight into the village’s former life as a thriving gold mining town, or book an underground tour of Bald Hill tourist mine. Nature lovers can discover cottage-style gardens in summer, and autumn colours along historic avenues of elm, oak, Monterey pine and London plane trees. You may even spot a wallaby or kangaroo wandering around the village.
Once a bustling gold mining town, today Hill End is a popular art, culture and history spot. Explore nearby churches, galleries and cottages, with beautiful English-style gardens. Stretch your legs along Bald Hill walking track or head further afield to Golden Gully or Beaufoy Merlin lookout. Top it off with dinner at the Royal Hotel bistro or beer garden. Then return to your accommodation to relax in the lounge and enjoy a good nights' sleep in comfort.
Hill End is located around 60 minutes from Mudgee or Bathurst and is a unique not to be missed stop over if you are heading east or west, or book it in to experience a true weekend away from the bustle of modern life.
