Once a haberdashery store and residence, Hosies has been sympathetically transformed into country accommodation. Combining modern comforts with the atmosphere of a bygone era, it has 7 bedrooms with shared facilities. Located in the heart of historic Hill End, between Bathurst and Mudgee, Hosies will appeal to solo travellers, groups, families and friends.

During the day, 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.

Nature lovers can discover cottage-style gardens in summer, and autumn colours along historic avenues of elm, oak, Monterey pine and London plane trees. You may even spot a wallaby or kangaroo wandering around the village.

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 guest kitchenette and common area.
