Camel rides in Broken Hill

Has anyone taken a camel ride in Broken Hill?...specifically, I am looking at a "sunset ride"...I know camels are somewhat disgusting and they spit...still, it may be a long time before I make it to Egypt, so I thought this might be fun...any thoughts?

I haven't done the Broken Hill camel rides but I've done one in Alice and been around camels doing rides in other spots over the years. Don't worry about the camels, I would be very surprised if the operator isn't pretty careful about the beasts they have in the train for tourists. Certainly we found the camels to be real characters and the whole thing was a real laugh. Definitely worth a try.

Hi ya i have been to Broken Hill, and we went on a camel ride. It was good and certainly an experiance. Im not a hige fan of heights. So seemed abit daft going on a camel ride as you do go quite high up. I cant remember where we were for the ride. But there are lots of advertisements in the town so you wont have any problems there. There is a help shop for people in the town which you may find usefull. It is right next to the bus stop with lots of things for tourists to do. I also was in Melbourne, and by far Broken Hill was much better. The outback was out of this world.
