In January 2015, after a decade-long campaign, Broken Hill was recognised as Australia’s first heritage-listed city. It now appears on the National Heritage List alongside more than 100 other sites, including the Australian War Memorial, the Sydney Opera House and the Great Barrier Reef.

The unique honour acknowledges Broken Hill's history and contribution to Australian and international mining, plus gives recognition of the city as the birthplace of the eight-hour working day and the industrial relations movement in Australia.
