The big picture was really good and very well set up but the man at the door made it sound like it would take hours to look at, but it doesn’t. The chocolate factory was just a shop, and most of it was stuff for...More

A great way to start your visit to Broken Hill to gain perspective of the outback attractions and the role art and mining plays in their area of Australia.

The big picture!!! My goodness this is an amazing feat! I was blessed to have this splendid artwork to myself for 10 minutes. I leant on the rail, listening to the soundtrack of birds, feeling utterly immersed in the experience. The “landscaping” around it is...More
