Drive Brisbane to Broken Hill

Drive Brisbane to Broken Hill - Touring route options for getting to Broken Hill from Brisbane, Queensland, AustraliaDriving from Brisbane to Broken Hill offers many touring route options with two distinct adventures available.

The first option is via the Corner Country where the three states meet, or by following the Condamine River (a major Darling River tributary) to the Darling River (Run) down to Menindee and finishing with a short drive to the Silver City.

Broken Hill has always been a ‘must-see’ destination, so much so that in 2015 it Broken Hill became the first Australian city to be included on the National Heritage List. That's impressive!

The Silver City has evolved from iconic outback mining town to the cultural centre of Outback NSW; an edifying transformation of an oasis in the desert for both locals and visitors alike.

THE JOURNEY

"It is good to have an end to journey towards, but it is the journey that matters in the end."
Ursula K. Le Guin

The Adventure Routes

While the more direct (sealed) route from Brisbane to Broken Hill - via Moree, Goondiwindi, and Nyngan - is best if you don't like anything 'off-bitumen', the two adventure routes are on well-formed gravel roads and only about 200 km longer... and much more of an outback experience.

After all... what's the rush?
