Broken Hill, New South Wales
design by Dóri Sirály for Prezi
Location of Broken Hill
Broken Hill is an isolated city in west of New South Wales, Australia. Known for the world's largest mining place, due to this main reason, this is a very known place for tourist to come visit. Broken Hill is a small indigenous community and it became the largest and richest city in the World. Broken Hill is located on the boarder crossing the Barrier Highway and Silver City Highway in the Barrier Range.

Factors that contribute to Broken Hills identity.
The main factors that attract people or make this city an such attractive city is mainly the sculpture in the desert, mining tours, museums, man-made attractions and other outback adventures or experiences. This gives a sense of Australian’s identity, also an Australian history which gives a sense or Australians identity. A such example of Broken Hills attractions is shown on the right of this slide or page.

Factors that have caused or that are causing change in the community
Mining is a very famous and significant aspect in Broken Hill. However, in 1892, 1 in 50 miners were effected by lead poisoning. As recently 1991, over 80% of children under the age of 5 years had high blood levels due to the lead contamination. This can cause a change in the community as there would be less miners in the city.
Due to the lead contamination, the community was required to build houses on metal to insure that the zinc and lead wont effect their family or children. This can be more expensive and less affordable for local to purchase the house. In saying the houses increasing in price and people can not afford it, this can lead to homeless situations.
Another common problem towards the community or mainly in deserts is dust storms. This can have an effect on the community because it can damage many properties or objects which can lead to no homes and a ruined community.

How the community has responded to these changes
Due to the lead contamination, the community was required to build houses on metal to insure that the zinc and lead wont effect their family or children. This can be more expensive and less affordable for local to purchase the house. In saying the houses increasing in price and people can not afford it, this can lead to homeless situations.
As for the severe dust storms that occur in Broken Hill, the State Emergency Service has just advised community to stay indoors and off the roads. An such severe case on the 22nd September 2009, this was an serious dust storm as it caused a black-out. Due to this dust storm, electricity was cut for the day for safety issues.

Strategies and actions of individuals, groups and different levels of government in responding change
Local government: There have been no apparent changes to local government structures in the recent years. However the Broken Hill city council is protecting economy from mining, as there are many negative impact.
The State government’s approach to VET is reflected in the Department of Education and Training’s its “Submission to the Senate Inquiry into the Quality of Vocational Education and Training in Australia.” It is obvious that some aspects of the national approach to VET are not totally accepted by the Department of Education.
The Federal Government’s objective is to provide the economic, environmental and social infrastructure necessary for Australia’s regions to realise their potential. The approach focuses on: establishing a better flow of communication between the Government and communities; encouraging all Government departments with regional programs to take account of existing regional activities and regional needs; and communicating this coordinated approach.
