Step back in time as you wander the historic streets of Hill End on Village walking track. Pick up a map from the Hill End General Store and take yourself on a self-guided walk to the many historic sites. There are also guided tours available, so if you want to get a more in-depth perspective, ask about Discovery tours.

The great thing about this short walk is that you can start and stop wherever you like. Great Western Store is an excellent place to start, with the historic photographic collection providing an excellent introduction to the history of the area. Or finish at General Store and enjoy picnicking at Bill Lyle Reserve after your walk?

Pop into some of the historic buildings as you stroll along, such as Northeys store, the post office and Royal Hotel. Stop to read the signage along the way, or just close your eyes and imagine what this thriving village would have been like.
