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 It My Way App for Broken Hill worth a look

"See It My Way" from the
facebook page
"See It My Way" App is a very useful App for an iPad which promotes Broken Hill and the district to visitors and locals alike.  It was released through the Apple App Store (iTunes) in August 2012.  I understand there is an iPhone App and Android version planned for release in the coming months.

It is the brainchild of Broken Hill locals Josh Cowdrey and Damon Edwards.

The upcoming launch was reported by Emily Roberts in The 'Barrier Daily Truth' on June 6, when Josh Cowdrey explained the App which "was an interactive GPS powered street directory with Yellow Pages, volumes of historical information and photographs, an events schedule, a coupon book, an interactive tour guide and a 'know-it-all".

You can read more about it here or on facebook.

I haven't tried it yet (as Idon't have an iPad), but if you do, I think it sounds fantastic.

Stay tuned.  More about it soon.

By the way, back on the 14 June I wrote about Josh Cowdrey when his work was exhibited in a joint exhibition at the Broken Hill Regional Art Gallery, see link to that article here.

Once again enjoy.  Cheers, Jane D
