For many Australians, Broken Hill conjures up images of a remote Outback town surrounded by a scorched, desolate landscape.
There is so much more to Broken Hill than Outback stereotypes however, and we've got the photos to prove it. Broken Hill is a heritage-listed town filled with 19th century architecture, a surprising cultural hub home to more than 30 art galleries, and a place that hasn't forgotten the significance of its rich mining history.
The following photos are a little glimpse into the Broken Hill most people aren't familiar with, and if they don't make you want to pack your bags and organise a trip to Broken Hill ASAP, we don't know what will. This authentic Outback town, where the past and present collide, still has a few more secrets for you to discover...
