Weekend & Holiday Visits

Hill End Ranch offers a unique, natural environment for a get away. We offer self contained as well as budget accommodation.

The Ranch has plenty of wildlife, kangaroos eat at their leisure, colourful parrots and many species of bird life. Children can ride their own bikes safely or just play out in the open air. The Historic Village of Hill end offers a picturesque environment to enjoy for all ages. We can organise an underground mine tour through Bald Hill Mine and gold panning for your group to take in the History of the Village. Or just have a quiet weekend taking in the magic sites of this spectacular natural environment. Couples can enjoy the peace and serenity as well.
