As happened in gold rush areas, towns sprung up in rural areas and after the rush, the hastily erected shacks and buildings over time, disappeared. At Hill End Historic Site a walk around what is left of the town gives you an idea of life back then. Large areas of grass where once there had been homes and shops etc. are now fodder for the kangaroos. Plenty of signs with information and photos show what once had been, alongside relics of bygone eras.
And the kangaroos! They’re everywhere! In front of people’s homes, in the back yards…
Lots to see:
