Well worth a visit to remember the lost and gaze at the views over the township and beyond. I was hoping to be able to see over the heap to see them working but not able to.

It is a striking memorial to the miners who lost their lives while working. There are hundreds of plaques telling the name, age and plight of each one.

The views are good (take a jacket unless it's warm) has good amenities and a cafe. We used the cafés in town.

It is a real pity you can no longer sit on the giant seat.

This memorial dedicated to the miners who lost their lives working in the hazardous jobs of a silver, lead, zinc mines.
Very sobering for all visitors to Broken Hill.
Nice views of the town and surrounds. Short video of mining . Little cafe and gifts.

This place makes you stop and think! The conditions these men worked under must have been horrendous. Fabulous view of the city and the surrounding country. One not to be missed.
