The latest edition of the Broken Hill Visitors Information Guide will be launched today and the glossy booklets can be found at the visitors centre on the corner of Blende and Bromide streets.
According to City Council, 100,000 copies of the book were printed on a “cost-neutral basis” for $120,000 which was paid for by fees from service partners.
Last year’s guide was printed locally but this year Wagga Wagga advertising company Murray Media was hired to distribute half of the 100,000 printed booklets around the country.
“The Broken Hill Visitors Information Guide is once again an essential component to Broken Hill and its tourism industry and tourists to the city,” interim general manager Greg Wright said.
“The guide also includes information on our surrounding neighbours such as Menindee, Silverton, White Cliffs and Wilcannia.”
Council was yesterday thrilled by the “handy A5 size format” and the new “For Real” branding of the book.
Service partners could also obtain copies from Council’s administration centre in Blende Street.
