Wreck and Ruin – Silverton NSW
Please click to view LARGE and on black
Silverton was a sort of practice run for Broken Hill. Mining was the go and the town boomed but ultimately faded in the light of the greater glory that became Broken Hill.
There’s not a lot of the original Silverton left these days. But there’s a lot of beaut character and characters still there.
There’s a bit of the movie star tart about the place too, as Silverton has been the star of many Australian films – Mad Max being one – and the odd commercial or two. You will no doubt recognise the pub if you’ve ever watched the telly over the last 25 years or so.
If you make it to Broken Hill don’t pass up the opportunity to head out to Silverton. It’s only about half an hour’s drive and blacktop all the way… and of course, there is that pub.
