There’s nothing like a town that is smack bang in the middle of nowhere – or the middle of everywhere, as the locals say. Surrounded by desert in a 300 kilometre radius, Broken Hill in the far-western corner of New South Wales is not only home to dingoes, dust and desert peas but a rich slice of Australia’s mining history. It is credited with almost single-handedly taking Australia from the paddock and into the industrial age. You’ll soon understand why the locals love the place. It’s rough, rugged, quirky, historic and beautiful - that’s what makes it an Australian icon.
