Step back in time on a virtual tour of historic Craigmoor House in Hill End. Home to the Marshall family for a century, this heritage building has been lovingly preserved both inside and out, providing a glimpse of what life was like during colonial times.

Be transported back to the colonial era as you explore the rooms of Craigmoor House. Take note of the impressive Gothic timberwork of this grand heritage residence and the artworks, furnishings and keepsakes that the Marshalls left behind.

Navigating the tour

Click the start button to enter the house, then use the circles on the floor to move through the rooms. Click on the teardrop icons to learn more about the Marshall family and their life at Hill End at the end of the gold rush.

Some of the tags have audio snippets–click the play button to listen to them. In each of the snippets, Jenefer Turtle, great-granddaughter of James and Sarah Marshall, shares memories of her visits to Hill End as a child. Her stories paint a vivid picture of life at Craigmoor House.

We recommend using headphones for this experience.
