Built in the late 1800s, Hosies in Hill End harks back to the days of the gold-rush and is brimming with historic significance. Originally a haberdashery store and residence, this unique two-storey building has been carefully transformed into a one of a kind function space that retains its old-world village charm.

With room for 74 people, Hosies is the perfect place to hold your celebratory event, wedding reception or company getaway. You’ll have exclusive use of the commercial kitchen to whip up a banquet-style feast for your guests, and the beautiful garden provides an ideal space for an outdoor bar or extra seating.

After your celebration, 12 of your guests can stay the night in the rooms upstairs. There’s also plenty of additional accommodation nearby, including Sydney Hotel Cottage and Northeys Apartment a mere 1min walk away.

And with Hosies located in the heart of town, you’re close to all of Hill End’s top attractions. You can book your ceremony at Sacred Heart Church before heading to Hosies for the reception. Or explore more of the town’s past at Hill End Heritage Centre or Bald Hill tourist mine and walking track.
