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.

The event ends Wednesday 28th around lunchtime.

I'm glad to see there will be at least two female presenters, who will appear on the final morning -

I am sure it will be a highly informative and fascinating event, with a bit of fun thrown into the mix as well.  I've heard great things about the previous three year's events, and the 2014 event is shaping up to be another success.
