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.

The Odditoreum Exhibition now on in Broken Hill

Okay it's not quite breaking news but it is odd and it is in Broken Hill.  Yes the Sydney Powerhouse Museum's "The Odditoreum" exhibition is currently on show in Broken Hill.  I had a sneak preview the day before the opening night (as unfortunately I had to leave the city prior to the actual night) and I highly recommend a visit if you are passing through town or of course if you are a local.  It's quite fascinating.

Just your average oddities

I should add that the GeoCentre houses a famous 42kg silver nugget and an equally famous Silver Tree as well as many other interesting exhibits.  It's well worth a visit in its own right.
