Hill End Historic Site was reserved under the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974 based on its exceptional heritage significance to New South Wales and Australia. The historic site contains part of the picturesque village of Hill End set amongst native woodland habitat within a tablelands landscape of rolling hills. The site also encompasses the outlying Golden Gully, areas of the Tambaroora Village, Valentine Mine and the Cornish Roasting Pits.

The Hill End Conservation Management and Cultural Tourism Master Plan was publicly exhibited in 2012 in draft form, finalised in 2013 and endorsed by the NSW Heritage Council in the same year. This plan comprises a suite of documents including a conservation management plan, a landscape management plan and a cultural tourism and recreation management plan. These documents guide conservation efforts for this unique historic site.
