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 GeoCentre is also known as the Albert Kersten Mining and Minerals Museum.

Address: 2 Bromide Street, Corner Silver City Highway aka Crystal Street, Broken Hill.

It is a very worthwhile cause so do try and go along and support the wonderful work of Lifeline.  This year, as in other years, there will be some great art.

I went to the exhibition several years ago and was lucky enough to attend the opening night which was a lot of fun.
