My blog is all about the famous outback Australian National Heritage Listed City named Broken Hill, located in the state of New South Wales. I first visited #BrokenHill in 2002 and have returned many times since then. ilovebrokenhill.com will help you discover what's great about this historic mining city, where in the mid 1880's the line of lode, a rich ore body of silver, lead and zinc was found. You will find stories about anything related to Broken Hill.

Rex begins Broken Hill to Melbourne via Mildura route 9 July 2012

Don’t forget the regional airline rex aka Regional Express commences their new service between Melbourne and Broken Hill via Mildura tomorrow 9 July 2012.

The service will run once a day, each way, Monday through Saturday.  The cost of a one way trip is approximately $225 including taxes/gst.

Flights will depart from Melbourne at 4.25 pm (eastern standard time – EST) and arrive in Broken Hill at 6.40pm (central standard time - CST).  The return flight from Broken Hill will depart at 8.20 am CST and arrive in Melbourne at 11.40 am EST.

The new service will be a real time saver as the drive from Melbourne to Broken Hill is some 840kms which is well over a 9 hour drive, realistically closer to 10 hours or more with the necessary pit stops.

There will also be an increase from two to three return flights a day from Sydney.

The Regional Express's press release can be seen here which includes timetable information on page 2.

Do give the new service a try and support this fantastic initiative.

Happy flying …

Cheers, Jane D
