Bill Hill Route Description178 viewsFrom the Arrowtown Chinese Village, head up Bush Creek and on to the Sawpit Gully Trail. Veer to the left near German Hill t and follow the old water race that traverses the hill and crosses two remnant Beech gullies. The track comes out onto a saddle where you take a right and climb another 100m to the top of Big Hill.

Head across Big Hill to the east and drop steeply down into a small sheltered valley where Shamrock Mine Cottage is located. Then follow a small track down Hayes Creek where it meets the Arrow River. Cross the river and head up onto the 4wd track and back to Arrowtown.
