Hill End - an historic Australian goldfields landscape
The historic gold rush town of Hill End is perched high on the NSW Central Tablelands, some 300 km north-west of Sydney. Hill End Historic Site, established in 1967, is one of the first cultural heritage sites to be reserved in Australia.
This book, commissioned by the NPWS, integrates Hill End's landscape and architecture, its artefacts and relics and the personal histories of its current occupants and those long departed. The book digs past Hill End's gold rush facade into the lives of the people who lived through its history.
The 232-page book is a new approach to landscape conservation and management. It represents the NPWS commitment to understanding our relationship with landscape, its imprint on the place itself and the people that inhibit it.
