Being just over 3 hours northwest of Sydney, Hill End Lodge is the ideal retreat to get back to nature, indulge in fine food and wine, paint and unwind. By day, guests can stroll into the historic gold mining town, walk or bike ride one of the scenic trails, partake in any of the local tours and activities.
For the more relaxed, simply rest in the rustic surrounds and landscaped gardens of the Lodge and enjoy the local wine and cheeses. As night falls, many head to the top of the Hill for stargazing. Just as popular is the large fire pit, which allows up to 80 people to sit untouched by the chill of night and to reflect on the unique mix of attractions that makes a stay at the lodge such a golden experience.
