After having lived in Hill End NSW for 5 [nearly 6] years I'd have to say it's a must visit place.
I loved being among the bush there. Early morning walks through the outskirts of town through the tourist walks was awesome. I would walk to and from work and see every kind of wildlife Australia is famous for.
And there are so many characters to meet out there. You don't have to look far to find some of Australia's most amazing artists who reside there, or live there afew months of the year.
Early autumn when the trees of the avenue are shedding their leaves is an amazing sight.
It holds a special place in my heart.
