Silverton, in far Western NSW, is a living, breathing part of Australia’s history. Even people who have never been there will recognise it, as Silverton has starred in countless films, television shows and commercials in all mediums.
Nestled in the Far West outback of New South Wales, Silverton was built by miners in search of fortune.Once a bustling home to 3,000 people, residents began to leave in the 1880s when the nearby mines of Broken Hill surfaced. Many took their houses with them. These days less than 50 people call Silverton home and only a handful of buildings dot the landscape. The town’s smaller size has not slowed it down however.Silverton offers a thriving art scene, a beautiful landscape and an accessible way to learn about the rich heritage of the region.In June the average temperature is 15 degrees Celsius. In February it is 32 degrees celsius. About 190mm of rain falls each year.
