GOLDHEIST & James Needham: REALM Live Art and Music

Musician GOLDHEIST (aka Hester Fraser) and visual artist James Needham come together to present REALM, a collaborative performance project exploring the spirit of place. Combining their respective artistic practices, Needham will paint landscape, as inspired by tour locations, whilst GOLDHEIST provides the soundtrack, fusing her narrative songs with electro-acoustic soundscape. 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.

Broken Hill 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 to trial ‘smart bins’ in CBD

The Broken Hill CBD

Council is set to trial new waste technology in the city centre with the installation of "smart bins".

Smart bins operate on solar power, and feature a compacting mechanism to allow bins to hold up to eight times more waste.

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.

ANZ Stadium's Graeme Logan at the Alma oval in Broken Hill

Southies have long boasted that the Alma Oval has the best playing surface in Broken Hill, and their claim will soon be given further weight thanks to a visit from renowned curator, Graeme Logan.

Mr Logan is one of the most respected groundsmen in Australia, and is currently in charge of preparing the surface of Sydney's ANZ Stadium.

Council's Asset Planner Open Spaces, Jarred Paull, said Mr Logan's visit was a gesture of remarkable generosity.
