Welcome to The Gatehouse
Located approximately 30km south of Tenterfield and 60km north of Glen Innes, Bolivia Hill is a geographical landmark on the picturesque New England Tablelands in northern New South Wales. Sitting on a north-eastern slope of Bolivia Hill, our property is characterised by large granite outcrops and open eucalypt forest.
We invite you to enjoy a stay on Bolivia Hill in “The Gatehouse” which offers quality accommodation with spectacular views over historic Bolivia Station and on to the ranges beyond.
The Gatehouse is self-contained accommodation and includes a wood-fired stove, quality furniture and fittings, comfy queen bed, cedar- scented bathroom, well-equipped kitchen with microwave, satellite TV, and a fabulous verandah with BBQ and breathtaking 180° views.
Your stay on Bolivia Hill has something to offer all year round.

SeptemberSeptember brings into bloom a fantastic array of wildflowers including dainty terrestrial orchids, grasstrees, hoveas, leptospermums, and kunzeas. The area is host to a number of endangered plants. Our cool summer evenings are just perfect for relaxing on your private verandah. If a storm passes through, expect to be entertained by double rainbows and amazing lightning shows on the north-eastern horizon.
Autumn could well be our best season with calm, warm days and cooler nights. Whatever your preferred activity (or non-activity) during your stay on Bolivia Hill, from March to May is just about perfect for it. It is a great time of year for bushwalking and bird-watching.
It is also well worth the drive into Tenterfield to view the magnificent display of Autumn leaves at this time of the year.
Winter days can be cold (and sometimes it snows). What better excuse do you need for settling down in front of the wood fire with a good book (BYO or choose from our selected offerings from The Bolivia Hill Book Depository). Or you may prefer to warm up in the sunshine while lazing on the verandah. The starry, starry winter night sky is awe-inspiring, and when the wattles adorn the hills with layers of sunny yellow, spring is not far away.
Your stay on Bolivia Hill can also include a walk to “The Cave”.
Local historical records show that one of the many hideouts used by the bushranger known as “Thunderbolt” is located on our property. With its proximity to an old Cobb & Co track, a visit to “The Cave” will take you back in time. If you like a challenge, you can follow Thunderbolt’s escape route between two massive granite boulders (with or without a torch!).
Whatever your choices, we’ll do our very best to make your stay on Bolivia Hill a very special experience. We hope you will relax into our peaceful 136 hectares and immerse yourself in restful privacy.
The Gatehouse is fully-fenced and has a single carport. Well-behaved pets are welcome by prior arrangement. Two nearby telecommunications towers provide excellent 3G reception.

Little Bolivia Hill rises approximately eighty metres above Deepwater Creek on the southern boundary of the locality.
Bolivia Hill and the adjacent nature reserve are the only recorded locations of the endangered Bolivia Hill Boronia (Boronia boliviensis), Bolivia Homoranthus (Homoranthus croftianthus), Bolivia Stringybark (Eucalyptus boliviana), the Bolivia wattle (Acacia pycnostachya) and the vulnerable Bolivia Hill Pimelea (Pimelea venosa).
