Staying out at Silverton 25 clicks from Broken Hill NSW, I thought we’d visit the local cemetery. Here you can find stories of struggle and hardship, young lives cut terribly short, and families torn apart by death.

The landscape resembles a red hot oven scattered with saltbush.  It must have been hellish in the 1800’s.  You can see for yourself that this cemetery and those interred appear almost forgotten. The local community however have taken a recent interest in maintaining this local history sight and its memorials.
