Broken Hill

Exploring residential streets on our first morning in Broken Hill, we very quickly made a friend. He lived in this well-kept corrugated iron home sporting a nice big front window with a big news spread of Obama's election night in faraway Chicago. (Where Frank Lloyd Wright first made a name for himself...) Not only could we enthuse about US politics, but our new friend told us about the unions and that our next stop had to be the Trades Hall a couple of blocks down the street.

The Syndicate Of Seven who claimed the entire 'Line of Lode' and then went on to form Broken Hill Proprietary.

The inescapable Mullock Heap! 
It dominates the view and replaced The Line Of Lode.

Although this city was built with iron, stone was the choice for significance.

The Living Desert and Sculpture Site just out of town.

Where Mad Max lives on.
