Broken Hill

"A **REALLY** safe, nice town to live in."

It's dusty and dry and old looking. If you want "hip" and "modern" and "touristy" .... please go elsewhere, you'd hate it here.

If you want personal safety, nice genuine people, LOW LOW LOW house prices, and all the facilities that come with a big town ..... then you'll probably love living here.

The place has a slow pace and it's not full of aggressive people like the cities. A lot of people are retiring here because of the relaxed lifestyle, facilities and extremely low cost of living.

There's lots of shopping available, good medical facilities. The main street is extremely attractive and filled with character.

Who lives here?

  • Families with kids
  • Retirees

I agree, it has a nice slow pace, with lots and lots of great shopping. There's also heaps and heaps of fantastic community events right throughout the year. I've been here for over a year now for work/study reasons, but I'll have to return to Sydney at the end of this year. I think I'd like to live here later on, and raise a family. Without doubt it's a fantastic place to raise a family. Although of course employment opportunities would be better in a big city for kids after they grow up.
