Broken Hill

Post by fatninja » Mon May 20, 2019 7:36 pm

Well seems the confidence levels lifted somewhat for us and we ended up in Broken Hill for a few days, what an amazing place!
The Top Parks Broken Hill Tourist Park we stayed at was fantastic, we ended up booking a powered onsuite site and we found all very comfortable.
I am sure many members here will have visited this town but if any have not and are considering, please do yourself a favor and do so.
Being members of our local Cemetery trust we found the Broken Hill and the Silverton Pioneer Cemeteries most fascinating, many old explorer, miner and pioneers grave sites to pause upon.
The heritage of this area is amazing and we enjoyed the mine tours and such on offer.
Just watch out for the wild goats and other assorted wild life on the roads.
Cheers, FN.

Getting around FN.

Quite partial to visiting cemeteries myself.

Have ever noticed that a number of husbands and wives departed this earth almost exactly 1 year apart?

Broken Hill area has so much to offer. We spent some days there and didn't see it all. We did get to see around Silverton and Menindee. I have detailed Travelogues on Australia So Much to See. The in-town caravan parks did not appeal to us, but we enjoyed staying out at the Racecourse, and the quiet environment there. With only limited places permitted, booking ahead is essential.

Hard times indeed, there was no fruit, no healthcare, no vegetables really thereabouts then, malnutrition and even clean water accessability saw the end of many pioneer outback children, the cemeteries have graves of these poor children and families.
One pauses and reflects sadly with them all.
