Hill End

Alluval gold was first found in the tributaries of the Turon River in the early 1850s. Hill End was a bustling gold mining town during the gold rush of the 1870s. One of the most remarkable things about Hill End now is the virtual lack of development since the gold rush. Almost all of the buildings date back to the boom years around 1872.

The village currently offers a general store, hotel, post office, police station, pub, and a variety accommodation.

Part of the fun of Hill end is getting there, the Bridle Track, which is mainly dirt and may be closed during inclement weather, is an adventurous and scenic way. Many reserves are located along the Bridle Track on route to Hill End where you can go picnicking, fishing,swimming, casual camping and fossick for gold. Prospecting tools and mining licence obtained from General Store.

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
