Broken Hill West: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Riddiford Arboretum

The Riddiford Arboretum features trees and shrubs of the region and is located opposite the Centro shopping centre. It was set up in 1988 on land that was a repair and oil transfer depot for the Silverton Tramway.

It is named after Walter Riddiford, mayor of Broken Hill from 1949 to 1962. But it is also a tribute to Albert Morris, a self-taught botanist who was responsible for establishing the regeneration reserves around the city. The plants in those reserves hold down the local dust and greatly reduced the previously horrible effects of the dust storms that turned day into night.

Julie Hart Gallery

Julie Hart has become recognised as a vibrant landscape artist, with unlimited potential in her field, who is not only able to create and capture a surreal depth of image, but also a perception of movement in her paintings, that many dream of, but few ever attain.

Julie carries the prestige of the Hart name, but as yet not the price and this creates an excellent point at which to start a serious art collection, or add to the credibility of an existing collection. Perceived by many to be the one to carry her father's mantle (although not as prolific as Pro) this makes her work attractive to both art lovers and investors alike. Over the last several years, demand has doubled for Julie's work due to the aesthetic appeal of her paintings and in part to the free and honest approach she has taken to her painting.

Artmecca - The Art of Deirdre Edwards

Deirdre's work as a visual artist portrays an essence of "self" in relation to her existence in the landscape. She seeks to express an inner vision created from memories, thoughts, experiences and connection with her environment. A love of all art has inspired Deirdre her whole life; and within her memories, she draws on the obscure details within a subject, unifying abstract metaphors with traditional, realistic impressions.

Line of Lode

Line of Lode Miner's Memorial and restaurant is a dramatic, iconic new structure on the edge of the mullock heap that dissects Broken Hill. It is a memorial to the 800 or more miners who lost their lives working along the Line of Lode. The building itself is a metaphor for the underground lives of the miners, evoking the damp, claustrophobic underground environment and audio-visuals of miners at work. The views over Broken Hill are spectacular!
