Broken Hill Line


Track: > 159.55 km
Stations: 8 / 40 in use

The Broken Hill line extend from Orange in the central west all the way west to Broken Hill and then into South Australia and on to Adelaide. It covers some of the most arid country in the state. On the way it passes through Parkes, one of the major freight interchange points of the network.

Today it is an important link for east/west rail operations in Australia. Apart from much of the trans-continental freight it is also used by the Indian Pacific passenger train, and for a weekly passenger train.

In the past, Broken Hill was the terminus of the line, with a narrow gauge line continuing west. However, in 1969 this was replaced with a standard gauge line, as part of the national gauge standardisation process.
