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.

Broken Hill's Summer Vibes Festival ends today

I am just home from the final day of the 'Summer Vibes Festival' and had a lot of fun. I met many people including special guest actor Tony Bonner and caught up with a number of locals too. A beautiful full moon shone down upon the good sized crowd as some short films produced by ABC Open's Jenia Ratcliffe and the feature film 'The Castle' (1997) screened.

I will report further details shortly and also post some more photos.

Enjoy the day off tomorrow for Australia Day.

Cheers, Jane D
