Trees – Hill End Road JunctionAS IS Photography

Hill End owes its existence to the New South Wales gold rush of the 1850s, and at its peak in the early 1870s it had a population estimated at 8,000 served by two newspapers, five banks, eight churches, and twenty-eight pubs. Its decline when the gold gave out was dramatic: by 1945 the population was 700. At the 2006 census, Hill End had a population of 166 people.

    Great angle of this very attractive roadway. What would we do without trees ? Heather’s ancestors made their money in the NSW Goldfields then moved to Otago in the South Island of NZ but they didn’t dig holes, they had teams of horses and carts to supply the diggers.

  • Thanks so much Roy! They certainly worked hard in those times! Hubby had a relative who worked as a Sawyer in the Goldfields of Victoria, near Maldon. Funny enough, I lived in Maldon, Essex when I was very young! Love History – especially Family History! :o)
