The popular tourist attraction of walking tours has been resurrected by a group of eager volunteers and Broken Hill City Council.
The tours were originally created by Broken Hill Walk Tours in 1983, and saw volunteers escorting groups of tourists through the city and highlighting its many points of interest.
The group operated until 2014, when a decline in volunteer numbers forced the Walking Tour team to disband.
But now the tours are back thanks to a spike in interest from volunteers, which has injected new life into the initiative.
"We have a group of seven locals who have been working with Council to get the Walk Tours up and running again," said Council's Cultural Facilities Operation Supervisor, Patrick Kreitner.
"They've been rehearsing a script, investigating routes, and working with members of the former group to make sure they're taking the best approach possible.
"Meanwhile on Council's end, we've been making sure the governance side of things is in order, just in regard to things like safety and compliance."
Mr Kreitner said the reinvigoration of the walking tours programme would prove invaluable for tourists and the city itself.
"We're Australia's First Heritage Listed City, and now we have a dedicated group who can walk tourists through the city and explain the many reasons we received that honour," he said.
"They can point out our heritage buildings, tell our stories, and explain all the unique aspects of our city that saw us gain national recognition."
The new group of volunteers behind the walk tours - the Heritage Walk Tour Group - is headed by Carol McGavisk, who said she was looking forward to the tours resuming.
Carol said her background in acting would hold her in good stead as she regales curious tourists while traipsing through the CBD.
"I got involved because it piqued my interest, I have an inquiring mind and I love delving," said Carol.
"Tourism is the new economy in Broken Hill and I wanted to get involved and see if I liked it.
"We've had a few practice walks, we roped in a few tourists and had a bit of a tour, and they really liked it.
"There's little stories everywhere, and I just love to tell stories. We'll really be looking to entertain as well as inform."
The Heritage Walk Tours will run on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10am to midday, and depart from the Visitors Information Centre.
Anyone interested in joining the Walk Tour group can contact Carol on 8088 3095, or simply attend one of the scheduled walks.
The first walk will be held at 10am on 13 April.
