Is Broken Heel in Broken Hill calling

The Australian outback’s most colourful odyssey, Broken Heel is on in September so anyone on the South Coast thinking of frocking up might have to get cracking.

Broken Heel is the annual celebration of all things ‘fabulous’, with three action packed days of high voltage hilarity in the spiritual home of Priscilla Queen of the Desert, Broken Hill. Expect a handbag stuffed full of stunning Drag Queens and Drag Kings from around the nation plus, plus a crafted list of entertainers bringing cabaret, comedy, opera & live music to get the stillettos tapping and the faux fur flapping! Headline acts, Alexsis Michelle and CoCo Montrese, stars of RuPaul’s Drag Race will grace the Broken Heel stage for the first time. Helpmann Award finalist and former Australian cast member of Les Miserables and Hairspray, Trevor Ashley, will also bring great performance power to the ‘Heel’ dance card. Hosted at the colourful Palace Hotel, Silverton Hotel and the shining Silver City of Broken Hill, the festival offers all of the authentic favourite haunts from the iconic film Priscilla Queen of the Desert. Even the million-dollar stage show “Priscilla Bus” will be on display! Meet some of the cast from the movie including everyone’s favourite barfly Shirl! The menu for this year’s event reads like a never-ending hoo with fabulous festival hosts Philmah Bocks and Art Simone.

Watch the website to keep up with all the fun. Don’t miss the Bloody Mary Moo Moo, the Schnitzel Crawl, or the Silverton Day out!
