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.

See my post of 7th August 2012 for further details about this recent important local event.

Rick has now provided me with a high resolution image (see below) of his winning artwork -

“The Land - Broken Hill and Darling River”. 

It really is quite a striking artwork.  Very impressive and a worthy winner.  Once again, well done Rick Ball.

Cheers, Jane D
