BROKEN HILL

THINGS TO DO

Fun fact: There are twice as many art galleries as there are pubs in Broken Hill!

Broken Hill is renowned for its arts with bush artists and artisans gravitating to the city for its stark landscapes and colours. In Broken Hill and beyond you will find a thriving arts community with galleries, displays and you can even see work in production. Broken Hill’s diverse landscape sets quite the vibrant scene. The deep red soil contrasting against sparkling blue skies has drawn artists and film-makers alike in hopes of capturing its unique beauty. You’ll find yourself transported into different movie sets as you move around Broken Hill. From the post-apocalyptic feel of the barren landscape made famous in Mad Max to The Palace Hotel where you can follow in the footsteps of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.

The City has a thriving retail hub which includes plenty of interesting sights, so whatever your interest, select a few sights and make your own itinerary. Walk down Argent Street and step back in time as you visit one of Australia’s classic streetscapes. The broad verandas shade you as you move from classic architecture to some new and surprisingly hip spots for a coffee, a light meal or something more substantial. Just watch out for the weather! Broken Hill can get very warm, so make sure you have the right attire and plenty of water.

Broken Hill is first and foremost a mining town, so your visit to Broken Hill wouldn’t be complete without a tour of the Line of Load and the Miners memorial – a surprisingly poignant reminder of the harsh and often lethal working conditions that miners worked under. Aside from the history, the view from the top is spectacular.

BE AN EXPLORER: STURT’S STEPS Follow Sturt’s Steps from Broken Hill into Corner Country, visiting the areas that Charles Sturt’s expedition crossed in 1845. Experience genuine station life with a range of accommodation options.

Follow the wild dog fence, cross watercourses, sand dunes and rugged ranges. On your journey, visit historic Milparinka, Sturt’s Depot, Tibooburra and Sturt National Park. Suitable for SUVs, off-road caravans or camper trailers. All public roads. outbacknsw.com.au/sturts-steps-touring-route.html
