Broken Hill

Having just got back from a family road trip to the Broken Hill, our family really rated our time in this destination. As there slogan goes "Discover a Lost World", we certainly did there is so much to do and see in this wonderful outback destination, we wished we had another day to explore just that little bit more. 

A family holiday in Broken Hill is the real deal. This world famous renowned mining town is packed with  significant heritage and authentic experiences amid the iconic, accessible outback.

Its much more than a stunning backdrop to a time that has passed. Its a place where your family can really flip back in time and image what life was like in the Silver City.  I really hope you can find the time to emerse and discover this iconic city.

  1. Checking out the Sculptures With A View. The sculptures within the Living Desert Reserve are hit for families, its great spot to visit for sunset, to watch the changin light on the scultputures. The sculputres are located 9km from the city. If your driving after Sunset, just take it easy on the way back town. 
  2. A visit to the old town of Silverton is a must. Check out the Silverton Hotel for drink and make sure you shout the the family lunch with their famous hotdogs, seriously good. 
  3. Take a Day Dream Mine Tour - Tour the Day Dream Mine and experience the tough working conditions of a bygone era. Located 33km from Broken Hill near Silverton, the mine enables you to go underground in safety and relative comfort at the same time as getting a sense of the harsh life miners once led. Our kids loved this experience. 
  4. For Movie Buffs, while in Silverton drop in on the Mad Max Museum, the orginal photos graphs inside are amazing are real throw back for Dads and Mums. 
  5. Visit the Royal Flying Doctor Service at the Broken Hill Airport. Make sure you do the tour, the kids will love seeing behjind the scenes and getting the opportunity to check out the aircraft in the hanger. 
  6. Take the Kids for a treat after the Flying Doctor to Bells Cafe, where they serve traditional old cafe drinks - Spiders and Milkshakes. Its a real throw back in time.
