Bells Milk Bar and Museum

Bells Milk Bar is a Broken Hill icon and must visit during your stay. The Bells Milk Bar team has been dishing out its famous milkshakes, sodas and spiders for decades. Stepping inside the milk bar is like stepping back in time with the original 1950s décor still on show and the ‘latest’ hits from that era still playing. Additionally, Les Bell’s original recipe syrups and cordials remain unchanged, and are still made right there on the premises in two-gallon batches. Once you’ve had your fill of old-fashioned drinks, head into the Milk Bar Museum, which offers a fascinating insight into Australia’s milk bar and café culture.

The nostalgic gift shop is also worth a look if you'd like to souvenir your own slice of the 1950s. Savoury food options and herbal teas are also available, as well as something definitely not available in the 1950s - free WiFi.
