Broken Hill was founded on the ‘Line of Load’ a massive ore body that runs through the middle of ‘Broken Hill’. The original Hill is now gone, but for a few tiny remnants, and in its place lies a vast hill of excavated earth. This hill is said to be about the size of the original ‘Broken Hill’.
Atop the vast hill is the Broken Earth Cafe & Restaurant which affords views over all the town. You can even see out to the Hill of Sculptures 6km’s away, mentioned a couple of days ago.
Don’t let a map view of the area put you off. It looks like a big mine excavation site (and it is) but from the top you can see for miles, and have a meal at the same time.
