Things to do in Broken Hill

Escape the hustle and grind with a Broken Hill outback break. Take in the art, culture and history of the 'Silver City' as you visit local art galleries and museums, and for the more adventurous, trips to White Cliffs, Australia's oldest commercial opal field, and Silverton, Australia's liveliest ghost town.

Broken Hill is also a great base from which to explore the true outback - from the beautiful Menindee Lakes and Mutawintji National Park, home to one of the best collections of Aboriginal rock art in Australia, to the red sand ‘corner country’, ancient Mungo National Park and the spectacular Flinders Ranges.

The Silverton ghost town, 25 kilometres north-west of Broken Hill, is the scene of many famous films including: Dirty Deeds, Mad Max II, Priscilla Queen of the Desert and Razorback. The town is a picturesque cluster of buildings with a jail restored as a museum, art galleries and artists’ studios and of course, the infamous Silverton Hotel.
