Description

The history of the Australian gold rushes is full of exaggeration- the First This, the Richest That, the Largest Something Else. Hill End unravels the myths surrounding the gold rushes in order to reveal the hidden histories of the Wiradjuri people, of the graziers and convicts who occupied the Wiradjuri lands, of the multicultural gold-boom community and of the subsistence community that endured for generations after the boom had passed. Hill End is perched high on the New South Wales Central Tablelands, some 300 kilometres north-west of Sydney. The Hill End Historic Site, which was proclaimed in 1967, is one of first cultural heritage sites to be reserved in Australia. This is a book that digs past Hill End's gold rush fa ade into the lives of the people who lived through its history.show more
