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 Heritage City Listing is described on For Real Facebook Page

Much publicity surrounded Broken Hill's Heritage City Listing on 20 January 2015.

I found this great short video below on Broken Hill For Real's Facebook Page. It is certainly worth watching to hear the story of the ten plus year campaign to #BrokenHill's listing.

The video shows key players in the push for the listing, including Professor Simon Molesworth (Chairman, International National Trusts Organisation, heritage commissioner for five years and the main proponent for the Heritage City listing), conservation architect and heritage consultant Elizabeth Vines OAM and Mayor Wincen Cuy (who now wants World Heritage Listing).





Cheers,
