ABOUT US | Gold Winner NSW Tourism Award 2018

The Lodge Outback Motel owned by a ‘sister, brother and partner team’ since 2005, located in the Country & Outback NSW Region, more specifically the famous mining town of Broken Hill. Located only 600 meters from Town Square the Lodge is situated in a quiet area of town, close enough to walk to the CBD for dinner.


Our aim is to deliver a broad range of experiences, tailored to the individual travellers need. Our latest adventure is our Gallery space showcasing local art.

The Lodge Outback Motel is in part located in a ‘historic’ building that is seen to have a significant heritage value to Broken Hill with its architecture and social history. The main building was one of the first to be built of stone and tin roof to Doctor William MacGillivray, his family & staff.

The building built in about 1904 in the style of ‘South Australian Cottage’ in a L-shape with verandahs on two sides and enclosed turret. The architectural style is characterised by its corrugated roofing, double-hung sash windows, stone sills and thick masonry walls to retain the heat in the winter. Inside, each room have individual designed tin-pressed ceiling, crafted by Ernest Wunderlich back in 1885.

The Lodge has 22 rooms divided into different room types to suit different travellers needs. Located in the main building are our heritage rooms: Superior Heritage, Heritage Queen, Heritage Family and Heritage Double. Outside on the one side we have rooms with Spas: Queen w 2 person spa, Queen w 1 person Spa and King single w Spa. On the other side the traditional motel rooms are located: Classic Queen and Classic Twin. In addition we have a three-bedroom house, adjacent to the Lodge fully equipped with kitchen, laundry and lounge area.

Broken Hill with its remote geographical location encapsulates ‘real experience’ eccentricity and otherworldly beauty. The richness of a glorious mining history, eye-catching outcrops of sunburnt rock and range, set in vividly contrasting plains of red dirt and grey saltbush.
