 Pleasant Hills

The aptly named village of Pleasant Hills is a hidden treasure, combining a tranquil lifestyle with a vibrant community.

Yes, there is indeed such a place. Surrounded by rolling hills, natural bushland and open farmland, it certainly lives up to its name – just ask the locals. The village’s history and strong Lutheran influence are all around with impressive buildings like the Public Hall, the wattle and daub church and the unique street signs in both English and German. And don’t miss having a schooner with the locals at the pub, NSW’s first community-owned hotel.
