Broken Hill (3)
City of Broken Hill is the largest regional centre in the western half of New South Wales. It lies in the centre of the sparsely settled New South Wales Outback, close to the South Australian border and midway between the Queensland and Victorian borders. The nearest large population centre is Mildura in Victoria, three hundred kilometres distant to the south on the Murray River. The nearest large city is Adelaide, capital of South Australia, approximately 500 kilometres to the southwest. Because of its location Broken Hill has strong cultural and historical connections with South Australia and operates on Central Australian Time, one half hour behind Eastern Standard Time.
