One of the easiest and most rewarding day trips from Broken Hill is to Silverton. Only 25km from the City, here you can experience a classic outback town. Silverton and its spectacular surrounds offer an array of unique finds - original outback art housed in heritage stone buildings, take a guided underground tour through a former silver mine at Historic Daydream Mine and get an insight into the harsh realities of mining a century ago, the Mad Max Museum is a tribute to the movie Mad Max 2, showcasing a huge display of props, life size characters and photographs from the film. If Broken Hill is the engine room for film makers in the region, Silverton is the film set. From the expansive Mundi Mundi Plains, to the 19th Century buildings, wide dirt streets and the famous Silverton Hotel, the little town that boasts a population of about 50 has been the star of many of Australia's feature films and advertisements.
