Broken Hill Area

Located 9km from the City of Broken Hill, the Living Desert Sculptures are a collection of beautiful sandstone sculptures that capture the essence of the breathtaking landscape. Created by international artists in 1993, see this collection of dramatic sandstone sculptures glow brilliantly as the setting sun lights the desert sky.

Mutawintji National Park, 130km northeast of Broken Hill, is a spectacular area  rich in Aboriginal history. Explore bushwalks and camp under the outback night sky. Centrepiece is the Bynguano Range, a stunning landscape of tumbled sandstone, twisted pines and tiny streams. This is a spiritual homeland for the Aboriginal people of the region.

The clear night sky just outside Broken Hill is ideal for stargazing. Outback Astronomy takes you on a guided tour through the Milky Way. Sign up for a Sky Show and unravel some of the mysteries of the universe, pinpointing some of its stars and constellations and learning about dark energy, asteroids and a few secrets about our moon.

A few kilometres north of Silverton the view from the Mundi Mundi Plains Lookout feels like the edge of the world. The hill drops away and the vast plain at your feet seems to stretch away to eternity over the sun-scorched canvas of the desert landscape. Visit the Mad Max Museum in Silverton, where the famous movie was filmed.

175kms north of Broken Hill on the Silver City Highway, the Packsaddle Roadhouse is a classic outback pub with charm and character. Stop off and admire the collection of hats, saddles and miscellaneous equipment that have accumulated over the years, and meet some of the cast of regulars who call this their favourite watering hole.
