Mad Max 2 was made here

This is Silverton Hotel together with the Catholic Church in a township that now boasts a population of 35. Mining giant BHP Billiton was founded here in the nineteenth century as the Broken Hill Proprietary Company.

The vast desert vistas and almost deserted buildings make Silverton ideal for film settings and dozens of movies and ads have been made here. Some buildings are now galleries, gift shops and cafes. Worth the drive from Broken Hill for a day visit. Take a hat and sunscreen.
