A Brief History
When you book cheap flights Adelaide to Broken Hill, you’ll discover a history that goes back thousands of years. Before European settlers arrived, the region around Broken Hill was inhabited by the Wilyakali tribe. Today, this group is still prominent in Broken Hill and the surrounding countryside. Europeans first moved to the area in the 1840s and quickly transformed Broken Hill into a mining town. The hills surrounding town were discovered to be made of silver, lead, and zinc. Since Broken Hill is located in the Outback without easy access to water, few people inhabited the town for the next 100 years. It wasn’t until after World War II that the first water pipeline connected Broken Hill to fresh water, helping its population to grow steadily. Today, Broken Hill has a population of about 17,000 people and is also home to one of the largest solar plants in the Southern Hemisphere. Between its mining history and access to gorgeous Outback landscapes, booking Adelaide to Broken Hill flights is the perfect way to start your next trip of exploring more of Australia.
