Outback pubs. They're quirky, friendly and welcoming, each with their own unique architecture and décor. There's plenty of these little pockets of outback culture, but here's a tasting plate of some iconic pubs that are bucket-list worthy and easily accessible.

Silverton Pub

Silverton Hotel

Just a 20-minute drive from Broken Hill, the Silverton Hotel is internationally famous. If you've seen Wake in Fright (1971) or Mad Max II (1981), you've seen the Silverton Hotel on the silver screen. Silverton is a quintessential outback town, with wide dusty streets, miniscule population and free-roaming donkeys.

Inside you'll find friendly faces and plenty of memorabilia from the pub's humble beginnings in 1884 to the present day. If you're looking for an iconic spot to stop for a meal and a drink not far from Broken Hill, the Silverton Hotel is the spot for you.

White Cliffs Hotel

This beautiful wide-verandah pub is the epitome of outback charm. In the remote opal-mining town of White Cliffs, the White Cliffs Hotel is one of the few above-ground buildings you'll find. Most of the locals here live underground, but that doesn't mean you won't find them in the bar on a Friday night, always up for a yarn.

White Cliffs is about as outback as it gets, and its pub reflects this with its rustic charm and warm, friendly vibes.

Red Hill Hotel

Okay, so it's not exactly a pub per se, but the Red Hill Hotel is not to be missed on your Broken Hill adventure. This iconic building has been used as a set on countless films and tv series. You may also recognise it from a slew of beer and Coca-Cola commercials in the 80's.

Hidden in the vast Mundi Mundi plain just beyond Silverton, the Red Hill Hotel's red tin roof and vast, flat clay pan surrounds give evoke a sense of outback remoteness that is truly unmatched. It's the outback photographer's dream, and can be found by jumping on a tour with Adam Edwards Photography.
