About Broken Hill

A true “Oasis in the Outback”, Broken Hill is a thriving regional town in far west NSW full of diversity, history and character. Being Australia’s first city to be Nationally Heritage Listed, Broken Hill is a culturally rich town with a vibrant art scene with over 20 galleries! The unique attractions, festivals and beautiful natural landscapes see tourists flock from all over, but the ones who stay quickly fall in love with the place and its livability.

With a population just shy of 20,000, Broken Hill is small enough to allow for a relaxed country lifestyle, while big enough to provide all the desired facilities of a regional hub including major supermarkets and retail stores, excellent schools (7 primary & 2 high), multiple gyms & aquatic centre, well-known fast food franchises and a plethora of trendy restaurants, pubs and cafés.

The beautiful Murray-Riverina region is just 2.5 hours from Broken Hill, and after a short, 5-hour drive you can enjoy the beautiful Barossa Valley – South Australia’s internationally acclaimed wine region. For a town so unique, it’s really not that far away with just a short 1hr15m flight from Adelaide, a 2hr flight from Melbourne or a 2hr30m flight from Sydney.

Broken Hill truly is a town like no other with a supportive community that will welcome you with open arms. We can’t wait to see you soon!
