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. Stroll along Golden Gully walking track, a short drive away, where remnants of old mine shafts and eroded rock formations in the creek bed will ignite your imagination.

As the sun goes down, head to Bald Hill, Beaufoy Merlins or Split Rock lookout for that perfect sunset snap. Then stop at the Royal Hotel for a pint with the locals, or head back to Hosies and take advantage of the kitchenette and tea making facilties.
