Hill End Heritage Buildings Open Day

With spring in the air there is no better time to visit the historic homes and gardens of Hill End. The Hill End Historic Houses Open Day on Sunday October 20 2019 offers visitors the opportunity to step into Australian history with 12 heritage buildings open to the public.

From the grand historic residence Craigmoor to humble miners’ cottages and artist’s retreats, the day is a rare opportunity to see inside Hill End’s heritage buildings and get a glimpse of what life was like for families living in the goldfields.

Recognised by the Historic Houses Trust as one of the most significant historic houses in NSW, Craigmoor’s interior and furnishings have remained virtually untouched since its heyday in 1875.

For those interested in exploring the rich artistic legacy of Hill End, Bathurst Regional Art Gallery will open its two residency cottages from 10am – 2pm:
Murrays Cottage - the Hill End base for artist Donald Friend and his contemporaries including Russell Drysdale and Margaret Olley in the late 1940s and early 1950s

Haefligers Cottage - home to artists Jean Bellette and Paul Haefliger in the 1950s, has been a base for some of Australia’s most important artists including Jeffrey Smart, David Strachan, John Olsen + Brett Whiteley.
