On a 2 week road trip holiday with 2 young kids, we found A Miner's Rest a wonderful home base for our 2 night stay in Broken Hill. It was a quiet, residential location with a good sized yard. Parking was easy - either in the yard or on the front street. The property is 'period style' and gives you...

About the neighborhood

Broken Hill is a very ancient land with miraculous sunsets. Mutawintji has wonderful ancient aboriginal art and Mungo National Park is one of the world’s foremost archaeological sites.

Silverton, an old mining town of the 1800’s is only 23 kilometers away. Visit the Daydream mine, stop off at the old Silverton ‘pub’ where the ‘Mad Max’ series was filmed, or ride a camel out into the desert. Wander around the art galleries and chat with the artists, photograph the Mundi Mundi plains which seem to go on forever and on a clear day you can see the curvature of the earth. Enjoy a snack or lunch at the café on the hill while you visit their collections of old bottles, bits and pieces and antique dolls. (Cash only there.)
