Broken Hill Civic Centre, 31 Chloride St, Broken Hill

Broken Hill is a frontier mining town in the far west of New South Wales and is set midst spectacular desert landscapes. The area is loaded with stunning and unique photographic opportunities and has a dramatic mining history. The town is studded with heritage buildings and is known as one of Australia’s most famous outback towns.

The Broken Hill Civic Centre will be our head quarters for APSCON 2020 and is purpose built for conference style events. Recently refurbished and comfortably appointed the Civic Centre has lifts and ramps for those who need them.

Registrations will be 3-4 pm on the 4 th September and will be followed by a casual sunset photography and nibbles opportunity. Those who wish to register later in the program will be catered for. There will be two and a half days of events within the Civic Centre and in surrounding areas followed by afternoon tours into the local region. The fourth full day will be devoted to discovering Broken Hill’s secrets beginning with a sunrise photography/breakfast event.

There will be an option to take a full day tour to White Cliffs on 9th Sept at a special APS member price.
