Given that Hill End was home to 8,000 people at its height, there are quite a few buildings of note. They are a good representation of 19th Century Australian country architecture. Many are no longer in use, and the two that are, are predictably, the pub…
And the general store/cafe.
They both seem to do a good trade catering to the needs of the locals and visitors.
Around the village was a full complement of traditional churches that seemed to still be in operation as well.
But there were also a lot of buildings that seemed to have been commercial premises at some stage of their lives but are now either empty or used for residential purposes. I wonder what they were all used for?

We drove there and back from Little Hartley, 30+ years ago. Only spent half an hour or so at Hill End itself because it was mid-summer and stinking hot. If you haven’t already been there, you’d like Carcoar as well.
Carcoar is in the mix, though I only did spend a few hours there.
I love the old buildings and the fences at Hill End.
