Introducing Broken Hill
Known as the Silver City, Broken Hill is a fascinating destination for its comfortable, oasislike existence in an extremely unwelcoming environment. Some of the state’s best national parks are in the area, plus interesting near-ghost towns. Elements of ‘traditional’ Australian culture that are disappearing in other cities can still be found in Broken Hill, showing the sensibilities that come with access to a huge, unpopulated landscape. This has also inspired a major arts centre, with poets, writers, artists and sculptors offering a surprisingly different and delightful view of the great outback.
