Step inside Northeys Store to get a glimpse into the past. Just like it was during the gold rush, it’s a busy retail outlet providing supplies to campers and fossickers, including local gold, preserves and unique gifts, games and fishing licences. You can book for a Bald Hill Mine tour here too.

This two-storey brick building, with its corrugated roof and verandah, is just one of the many historic sites you can visit as you wander around Hill End along Village walking track. It offers an insight into the daily life of this once-bustling town and a reminder of the wealth generated during the gold rush.
