Getting Here

Discovering a lost world in Broken Hill may be not be as hard as you first thought.

For starters, the nostalgia of the Great Australian Road Trip can be easily resurrected on a trip to Broken Hill. Load up the car with friends, family and luggage; stack the iPod with your favourite road trip tunes; and travel on sealed roads all the way from any capital city. The journey will be as rewarding as the destination as you create new memories along the great open road.

Remember to perfect the famous outback wave to passing drivers. There are many versions, so take your pick. Some drivers favour a wave of the hand, others like raising a lazy finger or two. Some of the most enthusiastic travellers say ‘g’day’ with a lift of their bush hats.

For the fast way in and out, Regional Express Airlines fly direct every day to and from Adelaide, Sydney and Melbourne (via Mildura).

By rail, the Indian Pacific operates from Sydney and Adelaide, with buses connecting from
Adelaide and Dubbo.

Hire car services are also readily available in Broken Hill.
