Hill End has a few remaining old buildings left over from it’s heyday as an 1870’s gold rush city in the central west of NSW, Australia.

Country born & bred but now located in Sydney, Australia.

I’m fascinated by the beauty of nature & in particular Australian native flowers & landscapes. I also love colour & anything unusual.
The Blue Mountains are my favourite spot at the moment.
