Take your family to Outback
New South Wales is a big state and it can take weeks and months to drive it all through. However, there are a few places that definitely should be on a traveller's list of places not to be missed. One of such places to visit is Broken Hill in NSW Outback. The local traveller will benefit from enriched knowledge of life in the country side and outback whereas the international traveller will see what life in the Australian Outback is like, experience some weather extremes and get familiar with rich historical background of some of the places deep within the country.

You can rent a campervan or a caravan which will allow you to stop for a rest at any time and not to worry about hotel bookings. Having your personal campervan is helpful in case you travel with a dog. For people that prefer not to drive, another option is to catch a train.

If you drive, it is more than 1100 km from Sydney so remember to have enough rest stops and adhere to speed limits.

While driving, you will pass some of the remote areas of the state and will be able to witness the nicest sunrises and sunsets as well as encounter some unusual plants and even animals.

Broken Hill as a destination has a lot to offer the visitor therefore make sure you have a few days to discover all that town has to offer and set aside some time to wonder in its beautiful surroundings. Don't miss Sculpture Symposium with its magnificent sculptures, be sure to visit "ghost town" of Silverton which got attention of filmmakers from around the globe, and of course get on a camel safari while enjoying a beautiful sunset in the area.
