This historic town is great for all ages and has several day-cares, primary schools, high schools, and TAFE. Beyond Broken Hill and on your doorstep, you can discover spectacular and culturally significant national parks, lush rivers and lakes, abundant wildlife, and other classic towns of outback New South Wales and beyond.
