Broken Hill


Just wondering if anyone has taken their Exy around Broken hill. If so how was it, and what is there to do in the beastie?

Re: Broken Hill


Yup,

we've come back from 3 weeks out that way (including travel to and from, about 1 week.)

Heaps to do in BH itself, we easily filled 4 days and still had stuff we didn't see.

Camped out at Mutawinji NP for 4 nights, great campsite, HOT running showers, flush toilets, and drinkable water as well. They pipe it in from a spring. Heaps to do in Mutawinji if you don't mind walking.

There is also Menendie (sp) lakes,but we didn't visit there, Silverton, Mundi Mundi plains, where you can see the curve of the earth on the horison, when we were there we saw a massive dust storm.

We also stayed down in Mungo NP for a couple of nights, Mungo is worth a visit just to see the Lunette and the old sheep station.

We also drove up to White Cliffs, talk about a barren place, with hills in strange places. Hot too was 33 in the shade when we were there.

There is alot more around BH that we didn't even look at, though nothing extreme in the 4wding section, alot of corrugated dirt roads, but nothing a 2wd couldn't tackle. But if it rains then it's a whole new kettle of fish.
All the roads are closed until they dry out, and then the mud is like glue, not to mention all the churned up roads, that is when you will need a 4wd.

Re: Broken Hill


Hi Bluey.
We went on an organised tagalong trip with 4 other vehicles from Broken Hill in august 2004. Visited & stayed at small country towns in outback Qld. & NSW.
Accommodation was at old historic hotels in towns such as Milparinka, (Pop.of 10 + 1 dog) Tibouburra,Eulo,Hungerford(Qld/NSW border with dingo fence) & Whitecliffs(underground hotel).We did about 4000kms in 7 days with no problems on dusty roads,not much 4wdriving though.Quite an easy drive really.Great trip & a great experience in a very sparse area.The old hotels really had character & so did the people we met.Check out the couple of photos on my page.It was a long drive to Broken Hill to start our holiday from,only stayed one nite there.Silverton(20kms from the hill) is very interesting & historic.Mad Max & Priscilla movies, + some others were made there.
