If you know the Australian film, Mad Max II: The Road Warrior, you will recall the menacing mood of the Outback environments where the film was shot. Mad Max II was shot at locations in and around Silverton and Broken Hill.
I am in the ghost town of Silverton - about 25 km from the mining city of Broken Hill. Because of its authentic Outback atmosphere, Silverton and its Hotel often feature in film and TV productions. Silverton (population about 50) retains its character as a ghost town but in recent years has also become a haven for a number of artists who have studios in the town.
In my next post, we visit the unofficial Mad Max II Museum in Silverton!
