Built in 1900, Royal Hall harks back to the roaring days of the gold rush. Soak in the atmosphere of a bygone era as you celebrate your event in this charming community meeting place between Bathurst and Mudgee.

The hall can accommodate 80 people for a banquet-style event or 120 for a performance, making it the perfect venue for a wedding reception, private party, business event or exhibition. With a stage, kitchen and large outdoor lawn, you’ll have all the facilities you need to look after your guests.

Nestled in the centre of Hill End, you’ll also be well-placed to take advantage of the town’s nearby attractions. If you’re celebrating a wedding, Sacred Heart Church is an ideal place to hold your ceremony before heading to Royal Hall for the reception. History buffs can discover more about the town’s past at Hill End Heritage Centre, or you can kick back and enjoy a drink at the Royal Hotel next door.

And if you’d like to linger longer in this charming spot, you can treat yourself to a stay in one of the heritage accommodations. There are plenty to choose from, including The Post Office Residence, historic Sydney Hotel Cottage or cosy Hill End Pines Cottage.
