From Sydney, after leaving the harbour city behind, your first stop is like stepping into another world. On the western extremity of New South Wales, Broken Hill, with its harsh arid landscape – often featured in cinema for its unforgiving, lunar-like appearance – offers a range of fascinating Off Train Excursions that highlight and celebrate how industrious locals have adapted to their incredible outback home.
