We loved Silverton. Silverton is pretty much a ghost town these days in comparison to years ago when it was a thriving mining town. It was so hot here. We stopped at the Silverton Hotel and had a cold beer and checked out all the movie memorbilia on the walls of the pub. A replica of the Interceptor from Mad Max is in front of the hotel.

Many films, tv commericials and advertising brochures have been filmed and photographed here. Commercials are filmed every few months and there are way to many to name.

We took a walk around the town and checked out all the historial buildings. There are a lot of artists that reside in Silverton. Check out the width of the streets.

Some of the films made in and around Silverton.

LOL that Mad Max car must be a permanent feature! Although was down her in Little River last weekend for the Back 2 the Max reunion.

We love Silverton too - does Peter Brown still have his gallery there?
