Broken Hill is known by many nicknames, including The Silver City, the Oasis of the West, and the Capital of the Outback, and is a fascinating and unique place to call home.
The town grew up around the discovery of silver ore in 1883, going on to become Australia's longest-lived mining town. Yet against that harsh backdrop, Broken Hill has also become famous for its very talented artist community.
It's been said that everyone should spend time in Broken Hill, just to experience the real Australian Outback, and to immerse oneself in the country's fascinating history.
Residents describe it as safe, friendly, supportive and genuine, with low house prices, good shopping and plenty of community events.
