Beyers Cottage

Beyers Cottage was built by the pioneering Polish miner Louis Beyers in the 1850s. Beyers was involved in the famous Holtermann Specimen discovery - the largest gold nugget found at the time. He later became the mayor of Hill End and is renowned for developing the local area.
This working class cottage is a miner’s dwelling relic and a great example of the wattle and daub construction technique. To go inside you’ll need to make a booking at Hill End Visitor Centre. Once you’ve equipped yourself with lots of information, be sure to visit the quartz roasting pits and Valentines mine and imagine how the pioneers fossicked in search of fortune.
