Attractions in Broken Hill

Broken Hill, dubbed Silver City, was built on the world’s largest silver, lead and zinc mine operated by BHP. Today, the Broken Hill area offers much more than mining tours and museums. Just outside the city, this special slice of the outback comes alive with its distinctive, clear light and expansive vistas, which have inspired and continue to inspire hundreds of artists and photographers. See exhibition of works in the region’s many top-class art galleries including the Broken Hill Regional Art Gallery.

Touring by car is an ideal way to explore the region and its many attractions, turning a road trip into an unforgettable adventure. Pass through the Broken Hill area’s small towns, many with a rich mining history, drop into friendly pubs and camp out under the stars.

Silverton, only 25 km north west of Broken Hill, was the setting of several Australian films, including Mad Max II, Priscilla Queen of the Desert and Dirty Deeds. The town is popular with artists and features a friendly but quirky pub, the Silverton Hotel. In nearby Menindee you can marvel at the contrast between the lakes and the surrounding desert – a real oasis.

The area goes beyond the stereotypes that travellers have of Outback NSW, offering sophisticated touring options, an interesting dining scene, excellent regional museums and art galleries, along with a glimpse into the contemporary life of thriving mining towns and remote communities.
