Behind the stone facade of the restored former Bond Store is another of Broken Hill’s must-see mining museums. The Broken Hill Geo Centre houses a renowned collection of Broken Hill minerals and gems, as well as many hands-on exhibits and information on how the world’s largest deposit of silver lead and zinc was formed in Broken Hill. Additionally, the ‘Time Line Room’ allows curious visitors to explore the history of our planet. Also on display is the iconic Silver Tree, which was once owned by Charles Rasp, the boundary rider who pegged out the first Broken Hill mining lease with his partners.
