  • Memorial of lives lost and lessons unlearned as many died of the same causes e.g. fell down shaft....??? and yet no safety measures in place to prevent recurrences. A tragic record of lives lost unnecessarily in the pursuit of wealth for the mining company. More old mining machinery on top of the heap would have made the memorial more interesting. We visited on Sunday and decided to go to the cafe for lunch.😕. Some nice food in the cabinets, but the kitchen was closed so when the food was all gone... nothing! If you order a drink, specify only two ice cubes, or you will get a glass full of ice. Broken Hill is trying to transition to tourism but most of the locals are unable to grasp the concept that they will have to work when the tourists are there and provide nice meals 7 days a week or their town will die.
  • Very touching. Many of them just out of their teens. One only14 yrs old. (Working Men)
  • Interesting information and the tribute to miners who lost their lives over the years was wonderful but very sobering
  • A very proficient memorial overlooking the town of Broken Hill. Inside the memorial the view, history and ambience is fantastic. The memorial itself and the tribute to workers who have passed is very grounding and thought provoking. Presented in a very respectful manner. Well worth the visit if you are visiting Broken Hill.
  • Lovely and quiet way to pay ur respects to miners t hff at have passed
