BROKEN Hill in the heart of outback New South Wales is an old mining town rich in history and natural beauty.
On a recent escapade in an off-road-ready Isuzu MU-X we ventured a couple of hours’ drive out of town to the Mutawintji National Park, known for its ancient aboriginal art including rock engravings and cave paintings. The area is protected, so guided tours must be booked to gain access.
We also stopped over at the Royal Flying Doctor Service of Australia, the Kinchega Woolshed in Menindee, the Silverton Hotel (of course) and countless museums. The trip was topped off with fascinating natural beauty in all directions.
2017 ARB ELDEE FAMILY EASTER EVENT
Never been to Broken Hill? The upcoming 2017 ARB Eldee Family Easter Event provides a fun-filled opportunity to pack the 4x4 and get away with the family this long weekend.
The event allows participants to take their 4x4s on the challenging, yet well-maintained station tracks. Most of the interesting and fun challenges over the three-day event are timed and are based on competency rather than speed.
Kids will be kept entertained with an Easter Egg Hunt on the Sunday – plus there’s also a jumping castle.
Night times will be spent playing trivia, indulging in an ale or two (for the parents), and participating in a complimentary sunset tour.
Spectator packages are available if you don’t want to participate in any of the off-road challenges.
The ARB Eldee Family Easter Event will run from April 14-16.
