A stroll around Broken Hill, NSW

Detail from After the Bath Harriette Sutclffe

Not surprisingly, references to mining history and minerals dominate the story of Broken Hill. Many of the street names around the town centre are named after rocks and minerals, e.g. Argent Street, Cobalt Street, Crystal Street and Beryl Street (and yes, Beryl really is a mineral!). Broken Hill’s lead-silver-zinc ore deposit carries the mantle of being the largest ever discovered and is the birthplace of the BHP (Broken Hill Propriety) company.
