Broken Hill Pictorial
2008 - By John Boom
We arrived at Broken Hill for our first time visit and headed for the Lake View Caravan
Park to set up our caravan. Then we set out to view the central city area which has many
historic old buildings going back to the boom mining period of the town.
Famous for its silver, lead and zinc mines there's a lot of history attributed toward this
mining town set in rural New South Wales Australia. The town has an interesting
selection of older homes all made from corrugated iron.
There are many mining relics scattered throughout the area reflecting its great
industrious past. Mining operations have been scaled down over the years with only
small mining operations taking place now. The pictorial has over 380 photos of Broken
Hill and Silverton extensively in high quality.
