Welcome to our neighbour north of Wentworth Region, Broken Hill.
A holiday in Broken Hill is for real. This world-renowned mining city overflows with nationally significant heritage and authentic experiences amid the iconic, accessible outback. Much more than a stunning backdrop, the Silver City is a place for complete immersion. A destination where daily discoveries are recounted every night amid an atmosphere of historic grandeur and hospitality.
Broken Hill truly is a living museum and since its birth as a promising little mining village in the 1880s, it has gone on to be recognised as the boldest of the Australian outback towns; its reputation pressure-cooked through decades of hardship in the desert. The Broken Hill Proprietry (that would later become BHP), boomed in the 1880s, and the population reached 20,000 by 1891. And an outback culture took root in the very worst of conditions, with a stubborn refusal to lay down to nature, that became the bedrock of the Broken Hill psyche.
