Surprisingly, you could easily spend a week in Broken Hill and not see the endless array of attractions. The experiences on offer range from art, history, food, and mining with a little bit of eccentric thrown in the mix. The town exists because of mining and would probably be one of the most significant mining sites in the world because […]

As a child, living about 40 minutes down the road this would have been one of my favourite beach locations to visit during summer.
