Travel Tips for Broken Hill

Desert Birdlife

by Kate-Me

There were several of these little hawks hanging around our campsite at Mungo....at first I thought when they approached that they wanted food, but it was actually my container of hand-washing water they were more interested in!

As there are no lakes containing water in the area at all, the only way birds would get water is from early morning dew or flying huge distances away.

Big, Bigger and Biggest

by iandsmith

Mention the name "Ando" in Broken Hill to a local and everyone knows of whom you speak. Peter Anderson used to have a gallery elsewhere in Broken Hill and I vividly recall his colourful flower and bird paintings, so impressive were they. But that was seven years ago. Things change.
Ando now has the premier gallery in Broken Hill. It's fair to suggest it's one of the must-sees in this city.
The feature is the largest acrylic painting on canvas in the world, measuring 12m x 100m.
It allowed Ando to evoke the broad scope of the outback in a 360 degree panorama of bush colours. To view the piece you walk into the room and, in the middle of the room on the walkway, you just soak it all up. Very impressive. Entry is by token purchased at the front counter.
WIthin the other sections of the gallery you will find more of his works but you'll find a lot more of other people's efforts as well. The quality of works here is what I remember. It's not limited to outback scenes either though it is fair to suggest they predominate.
The colours and brushwork along with some of the other crafts (and chocolate and fudge) leave one very impressed.
You can find all this and the Silver City Mint at 66 Chloride Street, Broken Hill or, if you want to Email, try silvercityart@loadednet.com.au

Guiding signs

by iandsmith

I had seen them eslewhere but Broken Hill certainly excels in them. I'm talking about the historical signs on the pavement. They are very informative and make a visit so much more worthwhile. Simply walking along Argent, arguably the Hill's most historic street, and relating to the architecture on show, how fire changed the facades and how people of note had their influence on what we see today was, for me, a pleasure.

The landscape is beautiful!!

by CandS

The landscape in Broken Hill is gorgeous...here's a photo taken while on our camel ride... This is the true outback... :) The dirt doesn't quite show as red in the photo as in real life but you will get the idea I'm sure...

We saw a lot of wildlife while we were on our trip...kangaroos, birds, emus etc...

The memorial

by iandsmith

Now, as I was told the story, this is a monument to the members of the Broken Hill band who were on the Titanic and valiantly played as the ship went down.
From what I can subsequently gather all the above rings true except the band members weren't from Broken Hill but, you have to admit, it's such an unusual place to find such a memorial.
If you read the inscription it could certainly indicate ambiguity as to whether they were locals or not.
I'll leave reality up to you.
The broken nature of the sculpture is not an act of vandalism but merely an ancient way of indicating a life cut prematurely short.
It's located in the main park (Sturt) in Broken Hill.
