Drive to Broken Hill
Driving to Broken Hill from any of the major east coast capitals can be thought of a long drive (Adelaide is very lucky to be in such close proximity to the Silver City), but there are wonderful touring adventures along the 'road less travelled' to really make visiting Broken Hill a real outback experience.
Broken Hill, in the far west of New South Wales, is considered the capital of the outback and the gateway to the interior of this great country. It is only a short drive from the Darling River (Menindee) and should be included when doing the Darling River Run.
It is a wonderful service centre and the first city in Australia to be Heritage Listed.
It is that awesome!
