Broken Hill is a frontier mining town in the far west of New South Wales, in the Australian outback. Its mining history is explored through geology exhibits at the Albert Kersten Mining and Minerals Museum. In nearby Silverton, the disused 19th-century Daydream Mine is open to the public. North of Broken Hill, Living Desert State Park features the Sculpture Symposium, a group of monumental sandstone sculptures.
