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.

Melbourne artist Deborah Williams loves Broken Hill too

Following communication with Melbourne artist Deborah Williams about her current exhibition 'An Animal Observes' at the Broken Hill Regional Art Gallery, Deborah mentioned to me that she "loved Broken Hill" as well.

I took the opportunity to ask her what she loved about Broken Hill and after her first short stay in the city for the opening of her exhibition in May, this is what she told me ....

"I love the people, the outback and the Broken Hill Regional Art Gallery" (BHRAG).  She saw a truly amazing sunset as well, and noted "The Palace (Hotel) (pictured) has great food and she loved The Silly Goat" (cafe).

The Palace Hotel Broken Hill
I must say I agree with her about the people, the outback and the BHRAG, which I think is so impressive.  I agree that the food is great at The Palace Hotel (227 Argent Street), and I also love The Silly Goat (360 Argent Street) (formerly known as Food Affair) especially their wonderful coffee.

After this one short visit, Deborah said the city "beckons me back". Naturally, I know what she means.

See link here to my recent post of 17 June 2013 about Deborah's current exhibition at the BHRAG404 - 408 Argent Street, Broken Hill, which ends this Sunday 30 June 2013.

Thanks Deborah for sharing your thoughts about Broken Hill.

Cheers, Jane D
