104 Piper Street! The Broken Hill landscape is a sad reminder of how humankind takes but does not give back. Slag heaps everywhere. However, the Miners Rest is a little reminder of how nice life was in days gone by with its 'period' touch throughout...More

We’ve stayed in cottages on our second trip around Australia and we were fortunate to find ‘A Miner’s Rest’ as it was the one we most enjoyed. The cottage itself was a step back in time which we loved. It was spotless, supremely comfortable, had...More

About the neighbourhood

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.)
