Church Service - Hill End - The HDR Series by 


The Historic Gold Mining Village of Hill End 3 1/2 hours drive from Sydney, the village is located in the middle of a National Park , and kangaroos seem to outnumber the residents. These two were waiting for church to start.

The church is St Pauls and dates back to the 1870’s

For those visiting Sydney , free some time to travel west of Sydney, you will experience the wonders of National Parks and World Heritage areas, old gold mining towns, old towns . And vineyards and wonderous scenery that is the true Australian landscape.

Hill End NSW
In October 1872 the Star of Hope Gold Mining Co. uncovered what was, at the time, the world’s largest specimen of reef gold. ’Holtermann’s Nugget’, as it was known, weighed 286 kg and measured 150 cm by 66 cm with an average thickness of 10 cm. That week alone, over 700 kilograms of gold were carted away from Hill End by the gold escort. In all the amount of gold extracted at Hill End was greater than any goldfield in NSW other than Canbelego

    Morning, at the expense of sounding like I’ve camped all over those hills (!)……I have this exact shot – without the kangaroos and with the addition of our campsite set up. Yours is much prettier though and a much better quality shot. Well done.

  • I’ll remame the series to the “EartGipsy Camping Series” lol

    And its not true they are stuffed kangaroos I carry around in the boot of the car lol

    They were actually quite large roos biggest ive seen in hill end , wasnt going to get too close to them they get a bit territorial
