ilovebrokenhill.com , was first published on 8 December 2011 by Jane Deany. 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.

Women Out West Conference, Expo and Awards 28-29 November 2014

Community Event
Women Out West is a networking group which provides women from Orana, Central West and Far West regions of NSW (including Broken Hill), the opportunity to increase their personal and business networks.

I came across the Women Out West (WOW) group courtesy of an interesting story I read on the blog www.bushbelles.blogspot.com.auabout an upcoming event WOW is holding in Dubbo, NSW, on 28-29 November 2014.

BushBelles is a fantastic, female focused blog which publishes content from a variety of bloggers. I've written about BusBelles before

The blog describes itself in the 'About Me' section, as a blog
  • 'for rural women who want to be informed, inspired and instyle'.
www.ilovebrokenhill.com has been proud to become one of the bloggers who's content gets published via the blog.

Enough of all this, onto the list of finalists which naturally include a few Broken Hill locals.

There are a number of award categories - 15 in all.

I've listed each category below and included the names of the #BrokenHill finalists -
