This self-guided centre brings the incredible characters, stories, and more than 120 years of Hill End history to life through screen projections, historic artefacts and interactive iPads. Peek into the the remains of a miner's cottage from the 1890s gold rush glory days. You can even see the old red Blitz fire truck, and an historic mining trolley.

The heritage centre is wheelchair-accessible and boasts both air-conditioning and heating, making it a great all-weather attraction that's suitable for everyone.
