Nature in Broken Hill
Broken Hill and the surrounding region provides the perfect opportunity to experience the great Australian Outback – captivating landscapes drenched in light, vast skies, brilliant sunsets and clear nights ablaze with stars.
About Broken Hill
Broken Hill was built on the world’s largest silver, lead and zinc mine run by Broken Hill Proprietary Company Limited (BHP), now Australia's largest mining company.
These days, Broken Hill offers much more than mining tours and museums. There are more than 30 art galleries, with work by artists inspired by the town and surrounding landscapes. Explore the ‘Living Desert’ Flora and Fauna Sanctuary, 6 km from town, where the Living Desert Sculptures sit on top of hills in the desert reserve. Enjoy an easy walk along the Heritage Trail, taking in many 19th century buildings or drive the Silver Trail that takes you to 100 historic sites.
