The Silver City Highway is a highway in the state of New South Wales, Australia. It runs from south to north close to the western border of New South Wales with South Australia. It links the towns of Wentworth, located at the confluence of the Murray River and the Darling River, to the mining city of Broken Hill, and the village of Tibooburra in the remotest, north west corner of New South Wales. North of Broken Hill the highway has a partially unsealed (gravel) surface, although one section is currently being sealed.
Much of the Highway from Wentworth northwards has a speed limit posted at 110 km/h. The 265 km from Wentworth to Broken Hill has just one roadhouse, Coombah, which sells basic foodstuffs and fuel. Between Broken Hill and Tibooburra the main stop for fuel and supplies is at Packsaddle.
