Broken hill in the news lately

Broken Hill features in "The Saturday Age", Traveller supplement
Melbourne's "The Saturday Age" featured Broken Hill last Saturday, 5 December 2020,
on page 5, in the Traveller supplement. The article may have been in the sister publication "The Sydney Morning Herald" also, not sure about that as I don't have a copy.

I hope the article spurs more people to head up for a visit in the coming weeks and months, especially now the borders are open!

As an experienced visitor, three days minimum is a suitable time frame, preferably longer. You could keep yourself busy for a week or so without a problem. There's a lot to see and I still haven't seen all the attractions, and I've been visiting for years.

Here's a link to the traveller.com.au website which has the same article, which shows it was originally published back in October 2020.

The Barrier Daily Truth makes the news
Recently ABC's "Australian Story" explained the dire situation of Broken Hill's local newspaper, "The Barrier Daily Truth". The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the bottom line due to the loss of advertising revenue. The paper went from a six day per week publication Monday-Saturday, to a once a week offering from late March 2020. It is publishing on Wednesdays and Saturdays at present.

Today is the ninth anniversary of my ilovebrokenhill.com blog. The pandemic has kept me away this year. I look forward to visiting again soon. It's been two years since my last visit! In 2018 I enjoyed two visits, and spent a total of over a month in the city. And what a great city it is.

As my blog says, I love Broken Hill!
