Only in OZ #4 – The Big Park Bench, Broken Hill, New South Wales
So you’re in a mining city, on top of the slag heap. What’s up there?
No, it’s not a trick question – but it MAY be a trick answer!! Unless mining towns are different where you come from …
Broken Hill, half an hour over the South Australian border into New South Wales, boasts a killer slag heap with a stupendous view over the ‘Silver City’ (yep, that gives a bit of a clue!) to the desert beyond.
So what else can you find up there? The ‘Broken Earth’ restaurant, Line of Lode Miners Memorial AND … wait for it …
…wait for it …
The Big Park Bench can all be visited from this convenient location!!
In this idle photo I’m sitting on the big park bench waiting for sunset!! I’m around 175 cm (5’9″) and the tactful would describe my build as ‘big’, so I appreciate ANYTHING that makes me look small!
Regular readers may recall a previous description of other Broken Hill delights – and there are many more!
Oops! Nearly missed this historic blog moment! Unless I’m much mistaken, this is the first photo I’ve posted on this blog that actually has ME in it!! Prove me wrong by checking photos on previous posts if you dare!!
