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.

Weather in Broken Hill can sometimes be hot, very hot ... like now!

Broken Hill and quite a lot of central Australia is about to have a run of really hot weather.  First up I should mention, make sure you have plenty of water with you, on your person and in your car if you are travelling by car.  Don't underestimate the fact that people can and do die of dehydration in very hot weather.  I don't want to scare you, but I do want you to be prepared so you won't have any problems.

Please see the link to www.weatherzone.com.au and here for the latest information on the weather in Broken Hill.

In a nutshell, from Friday 4 January through to Wednesday 9 January 2013, the temperatures are forecast to be reach 43c, 44c, 43c, 43c, 42c, and wow, a bit cooler for the 9th at 40c.  Now that's hot!  There are plenty of cool places to hang out, there aren't many places in Broken Hill that don't have air conditioning.

Another great place to consider would of course be the new Regional Aquatic Centre which is corner McCulloch and Radium Streets.  I can't guarantee it won't be popular and a bit crowded, but it does include a fabulous new 50 metre pool as part of the complex.

Stay cool (if you can) and stay safe.

Cheers, Jane D
