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.

The Broken Hill Regional Art Gallery will open a new exhibition this coming Saturday 16 June 2012.  There will be four exhibitions –

Broken Hill Regional Art Gallery
Bankstown Sister City Exhibition

Broken Hill: The Past and The Present

ABC Open's "Now And Then" Project

(The advertised 2012 Far West Emerging Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Prize exhibition also scheduled has unfortunately been delayed until 2013.)

It sounds a really fabulous exhibition.  My brief contact with Jordan Kowalski who has provided this lovely image below has really made me wish I was up in Broken Hill again but unfortunately I am in Melbourne so I won’t be able to make the trip.  Please be my eyes and tell me how you found the exhibition.
