Simultaneously curated and improvisational, this spatially motivated 1hr performance will explore the spirit of place, and the different ways our surrounds can inspire and impact us.

Christmas Pageant

Broken Hill City Council together with Rotary Club of South Broken Hill join forces to bring you Broken Hill's favorite way to kick off the festive season - a parade of floats, vintage vehicles, and much more. Celebrate the start of the festive season by participating or watching as the parade makes its way down Oxide Street, along Argent Street to Sulphide St and then on to Sturt Park. The Parade will be followed by a Party in Sturt Park with community food stalls, children's activities and more.

Council's General Manager, James Roncon, said the trial was being undertaken as part of Council's Smart Community Framework, which aims to increase Council's service to the community by utilising technology.
