Broken Hill

Spectacular scenery, classic red soil and deep blue skies are highlights of travelling to the Outback on NSW TrainLink's western route.

Take in the art, culture and history of Broken Hill as you visit local art galleries and museums, and for the more adventurous, trips to the Opal mining towns of White Cliffs and Cobar, or Australia's liveliest ghost town Silverton. 

Broken Hill is also a great base from which to explore the true Outback - from the beautiful Menindee Lakes and Mutawintji National Park, home to one of the best collections of Aboriginal rock art in Australia, to the red sand ‘Corner Country’ area, ancient Mungo National Park and the spectacular Flinders Ranges.
