Continuing Broken Hill at Silverton

What an interesting day out at the historic ghost town of Silverton. As we drove into town we were met by the local welcoming party....they were so sweet. They wandered straight over to us and checked us out....I think we passed muster.
The look on my face is the complete failure  of my insect repellent on the flies! Arggh!
 The lovely old dog accompanying them is Teddy.....we became good mates and he agreed to have his piccie taken for a drawing later on.
Hubby headed here.....on his bucket list!

Moi? I headed here!

Got to meet the artist and watch him work and have a chat. I also bought two signed prints at a very reasonable price.....lots of interesting features in this seemingly deserted place.

After a drive out to Mundi Mundi Plains to see the landscape where much of movie Mad Max was filmed we came back to Silverton Hotel for a good old pub lunch.

We chose to sit out on the closed in verandah . .....and yes that is a horse!
Yep! Even the horses can get a drink at the Silverton Hotel!

Just loved these gorgeous tables made from solid slices of timber.

The outside stage in the beer garden was somewhat unique too.

There are crumbling ruins everywhere around the town....

We throughly enjoyed wandering around this piece of history and enjoyed the locals.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx

  4. Such interesting places! I would love to see the sculpture garden. Isn't that wood in the Silverton Hotel really something - do you know if it was from local trees?
