Free nights on sites and discounted deluxe cabin accommodation
Holidaymakers can stay at the new Broken Hill Outback Resort and save thanks to two new offers for the resort’s camping and van sites and new, deluxe spa cabins.
Until July 31, 2019, outback explorers who stay on one of the camping and camping sites for three nights, can stay a fourth night for free. And those looking for extra comfort can stay in one of the new spa cabins for $155 a night per cabin – a $30 saving. The self-contained cabins feature a king bed, fold-out sofa, spa bath with desert views, a kitchenette, TV and an outdoor deck offering outback vistas and beautiful sunsets.
Outback NSW tourism company, Out of the Ordinary Outback, launched the resort, 13km east of Broken Hill, in September, 2018, with 40 camping and van sites. Twelve cabins opened for business last month and another 12 cabins will be completed by the end of the year.
Surrounded by the rugged Barrier Ranges as a gateway to the outback city, the oasis-like Broken Hill Outback Resort is designed to help visitors experience the essence of the Australian outback in comfort. The resort surrounds the historic Mt Gipps Hotel, now spectacularly restored by the Out of the Ordinary Outback group and now featuring a restaurant and bar.
Built in 1890, the stone hotel was popular with miners, soldiers, artists and travellers before closing in 1987. Out of the Ordinary Outback bought the abandoned hotel in 2015 and has completely restored and renovated the neglected heritage building, with the re-inspired ‘watering hole’ and its cool, wrap-around verandah already popular with locals and outback travellers for its cold beer, great meals and scope to relax and absorb the beauty of the outback.
Perfect as a base for exploring the Australian outback, Broken Hill offers art galleries, famous festivals and a rich mining history, and the new resort is located close to Outback Astronomy, where guests can learn more about the extensive canopy of stars above. The resort is also an ideal spot to enjoy sunrises and sunsets over the rugged mountain ranges.
While at the resort, guests can explore the region with Out of the Ordinary Outback’s local 4WD touring arm, Tri State Safaris, which can take visitors to the famous ghost town of Silverton and the rugged scenery and rock art of remote Mutawintji National Park.
Based in far west of NSW, Out of the Ordinary Outback owns seven properties including the new Broken Hill Outback Resort, Copper City Hotel in Cobar, The Argent Motel in Broken Hill, The Tourist Lodge Warrawong on the Darling, Wilcannia, the famous White Cliffs Underground Motel and the Ivanhoe Hotel Motel. Out of the Ordinary Outback also owns the Tri State Safaris touring company, which is based at the company’s own visitor centre in Broken Hill. www.outoftheordinaryoutback.
