Back before the Trans-Tasman Bubble was burst, I planned to combine a visit to my family in Sydney with a visit to Broken Hill. I am still hanging out for a long train journey. As I did not want to return the next day nor stay a whole 8 nights in Broken Hill, I reluctantly booked a flight with Rex Broken Hill- Dubbo- Sydney after 4 nights. The only alternative was bus to Dubbo connecting with the XPT leaving at an unearthly time in the morning.
First class was booked out so I chose Economy. Fortunately I received full refunds from both the train and from Rex,
I have seen inquiries on Tripadvisor about train trips to Broken Hill.
If I ever consider it again, it would be nice to see at last 2 weekly round trips on offer.
