Step back in time to the gold rush days at the former postmaster’s home in Hill End Historic Site. Built in 1872, this handsomely restored single-story residence and stables is a great country getaway for families or small groups.

Located in the village,a short stroll from Hill End Heritage Centre, the Post Office Residence combines grand colonial style with modern convenience while The Stables provides a truly unique place to stay and is fully self contained with its own entry, kitchen and living room. Enjoy a peaceful night's rest in 1 of 4 attractively decorated bedrooms, sleeping up to 8 guests. Wake up refreshed for a relaxing breakfast in your kitchen, before stepping out to delve into Hill End’s many attractions.

Once a bustling gold mining town, today Hill End is a popular art, culture and history spot. Stroll down avenues of elm, oak and plane trees, especially beautiful in autumn, as you take a self-guided tour around town. Explore nearby churches, galleries and cottages, with beautiful English cottage-style gardens. Stretch your legs along Bald Hill walking track or head further afield to Golden Gully or Beaufoy Merlin lookout.

Top off it off with dinner at the Royal Hotel bistro or beer garden. Then return to your accommodation to relax in the lounge and enjoy a good nights' sleep in comfort.
