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.

It's a great time of the year to be in the city. I went up with a friend in 2012 and we had a fantastic time.

If you've never been to this event it's great fun. It makes for a wonderful excuse to tie in a visit to the city, especially if you've never visited Broken Hill before.

I really can't recommend it highly enough.

Don't forget to bring something green to wear, although we found not as many people actually wore green as we had expected.

Cheers, Jane Deany
