"Don't stop in this town"

I visited Cockburn with my husband and Children a few months back. We decided to stay in town opposed to nearby Broken Hill as we wanted to experience something different and that is exactly what we got. We expected that the services in Cockburn would be limited, but we did not expect the presence of drunks walking around hurling abuse at anyone and everything. The yelling on this particular night went for hours and my children were very scared.
The next morning I spoke with a local woman and she explained that the men live in town and their behaviour was an on-going issue and that police often get involved. I suggest that any travellers continue through Cockburn and stay in Broken Hill.
Pros
  • Some friendly locals
Cons
  • Not safe and sound
  • No where to eat except the road-house
  • Limited services
