Ghost Town Turned Cultural Haven

The original mining settlement in the region, Silverton boasts some of the oldest colonial buildings in the region from its heyday in the late 1800s.

A short drive from Broken Hill, a trip to Silverton will give you a true insight into early colonial living. Silverton today is also home to the quintessential quirkiness that can be found throughout the outback. A visit to one of Silverton’s surprisingly many art galleries will reveal the friendly larrikinism, oddball creativity and offbeat humour that can only be experienced out here.
