Broken Hill, or 'The Silver City' is a mining town on the edge of the desert at the central-western edge of New South Wales. Perhaps the most memorable feature of Broken Hill is that it is only a few minutes from the desert no matter which direction you travel. It is a city surrounded by red soils, grey scrub, impossible flatness, and intensely blue skies that make the world seem larger and more dramatic. On this tour we visit Lightning Ridge world renown for black opal that has been found in the area. Surprisingly, the town has many attractions apart from opals and opal mining. Then White Cliffs is not to be missed with its wonderful Bill O'Reilly Oval, with not a blade of grass; the unusual underground accommodation; and the amazing night skies.
