General Store

Located right in the centre of this historic township, Hill End’s General Store is a great meeting place before embarking on a walk or Discovery tour. This wheelchair-accessible cafe offers great coffee, meals, groceries and general merchandise.
The store is an excellent example of Hill End’s unique architectural heritage. Originally two separate buildings, the Salvation Army hall was added in the 1880s, on the site that was originally the Colonial Wine and Dining rooms. The Baker and Grocer section dates back to 1872, when it was the heart of this bustling mining community.
Grab some snacks from the cafe and enjoy a leisurely lunch in Bill Lyle Reserve picnic area. Or, if you’re feeling indulgent, tuck into a delicious lunch in the restaurant, surrounded by historic photos in the old Salvation Army hall. Be sure to book ahead during busy times to avoid missing out on this unique dining experience.
