As Australia’s first national heritage-listed city, Broken Hill’s contribution to the country’s national identity cannot be ignored. Broken Hill is a former boomtown situated west of the outback, known for its robust precious and base metals deposits. It is said that the country owed much of its progress during the 19th century to Broken Hill’s Line of Lode, a massive ore body containing zinc, lead and silver. Broken Hill was also responsible for the founding of Australia’s union movement and the introduction of modern employment practices, such as the eight-hour workday.
