The 'Sundown Nature Trail' is situated in the rocky Sundown Hills, on the northern edge of the Broken Hill Common.
The hills are sparsely vegetated with tough, perennial plants adapted to the harsh, dry environment and in good seasons, ephemeral grasses and wildflowers.
Native animals can be easily seen.
The suggested time to leave town is about three hours before sunset.
The walk is 2.8 kilometres long, through rocky terrain and takes about one to one and a half hours to complete.
