Synagogue of the Outback Museum



A vibrant and successful Jewish community existed in Broken Hill for three generations from the 1880s to the 1960s - most of whom had their origins in Central and Eastern Europe. On November 30th 1910 the foundation stone was set in place on the newly erected synagogue in Wolfram Street. The synagogue, which has been rescued and restored by the local Historical Society, stands proudly as a reminder of the evolution of the Jewish community in regional Australia.

The museum is open every Monday, Wednesday and Sunday from 10am to 3pm.
