It was really hard to leave Warrawong on the Darling. Such a beautiful spot. Imagine having your caravan backed up to the edge of a billabong, with hundreds of birds feeding. Got the picture yet?

We drove the 200kms to Broken Hill without event.

After booking in, we visited the information centre for details of some things to see and then drove up onto the top of the original mine to the Line of Load Miner's Memorial. Towering over the city, it is situated over the line of ore body which bisects the city and remembers the more than 800 miner's killed in the history of mining in Broken Hill.

Nearby is the former Broken Earth Cafe; Restaurant which has been closed. Its located in one of the outstanding places over any city in Australia. Its to be hoped that it reopens in some form rather than sit like a the elephant in Broken Hill's room.
