Hill End Camping Trip

I spent a very happy, autumn-y weekend camping on the ANZAC Day long weekend in Hill End, at ‘The End Festival of Arts, Feasting and Heritage’ organised by NSW National Parks. Located in the central west of New South Wales, Hill End is around 70km from both Bathurst and Mudgee, and just under 4 hour drive from Sydney. It is an Historic Site managed by the NSW National Parks and home to a community of about 100 people.

My friend Oceana sent me a link for the event and it sounded like the perfect weekend mix of music, local food and drink, and the Aussie bush! Joined also by another friend, Giselle, we left Sydney early on Saturday morning and drove up through the Blue Mountains for an easy drive stopping only for coffee along the way.


Hello friendly reader! For a long time I felt like I was just writing for, and to, myself. But lately Google Analytics has been telling me a different story. Apparently I am writing to an audience of a couple hundred a month from all corners of the globe!

I’d like to hope people are landing here because there’s a genuine match for something they’re trying to find out more about.

I would LOVE to hear from these visitors – from you.

In the words of the brilliant Glen Hansard:

If you have something to say, say it to me now

Please leave me a comment and let me know where you’re from, what brought you here and where you’re going.

It would really make my day to hear from you :-)

And with my thanks, here is an awesome gift:
