The TV show 'Australia's Next Top Model' has been in the city for the past couple of days shooting scenes for its new season.
The hit reality series can be seen on FOX8. It follows a group of young women as they try to prove they have what it takes to make it in the high-stress, high-stakes world of modelling.
During the series, the finalists are transformed from attractive girls into potential working models, while navigating their way through various modelling assignments and tasks.
The girls must demonstrate both inner and outer beauty as they learn to master complicated cat walks, physical fitness, fashion photo shoots and to perfect publicity skills.
Senior production manager Sue Evans said the crew arrived on Tuesday to shoot season eight.
"We have some models here and two of the judges," Ms Evans said.
"The set up of the show means the models learn a lesson, do a challenge then have their photo shoot.
"So we have been to Eldee Station, Silverton and are going to Belmont Station."
They also got art lessons from the BH Regional Art Gallery's Manager, Cathy Farry, and Ms Evans said the whole experience had been "fantastic".
"I can't speak highly enough of Broken Hill. There is beautiful scenery and the people have been really helpful.
"We have not had one bad experience and the food has been good as well.
"I am very supportive of the town - it is a beautiful place and I am thrilled we got to shoot here."
