ABC Open Broken Hill, Romance, Hot Weather and Me

It was a hot 40 degrees in
Broken Hill outside the
West Darling Hotel
I was delighted to write a guest blog for ABC Open Broken Hill a couple of days ago.  It was fun to reminisce a little about the beginnings of my "romance" with Broken Hill.  I have provided a link to the article here.  Given some of the details of the story, it was fitting that it was published on a hot 43 degree day in Broken Hill.  It was pretty hot in Melbourne that day too, we got to 39 degrees "down south".

ABC Open provides a fantastic avenue for regional Australians and some city folk too who have a regional 'connection', to keep in touch even if they are thousands or hundreds of kilometres away from the nearest town.  In ABC Open's own words - 

"ABC Open invites regional communities to produce and publish photos, stories, videos and sound through the ABC."

It's a fascinating website well worth checking out.  There is a wide variety of really interesting stories published in a range of mediums.  There are so many talented story tellers, photographers and film-makers out there in regional Australia.

Cheers, Jane D
