    Day 74 Silverton

    June 26, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    Today we drove across the border from South Australia to New South Wales.
    We checked out Broken Hill and stayed in Silverton. In Broken Hill we visited the information centre and got some more supplies.
    Once we finally arrived in Silverton we booked into the Penrose Park caravan park which had lots of birds and animals.
    Next we went to the Silverton School Museum. The school began from a tent in 1884 and the one-roomed stone building was completed in 1889. Dame Mary Gilmore, who is on the Australian ten dollar note, taught children at the Silverton School. There were lots of original books and old stationery dating back from 1884 to 1970 when the school was closed. It was also cool to say that all of the year level's were taught in one classroom back then.
    Next we checked out a few galleries and smaller shops.
    The highlight of the day was definitely the Mad Max 2 Museum. It was so interesting because Mad Max was created in Australia and was one of the most iconic movies ever made in Australia. It had all of the cars from the movie and costumes.
    After the Mad Max Museum we checked out another art gallery that had donkeys at the back.
    The last stop was the Silverton Hotel that has also featured in many movies.

    First township in the area. Established when silver was found in the area. Dusty dry place! Thank goodness for the pub!
    The Mad Max films and "A town like Alice" were filmed here. There is a Mad Max Museum and lots of art galleries to explore.
