And what is Silverton most famous for in recent years? Movie filming! Many films have been filmed in and around Silverton (and not talking about the Silverton in Colorado which has probably also featured in movies).
3 of the most famous internationally movies have been Mad Max 2, Priscilla Queen of the Desert and Mission Impossible 2.
The main photo shows the Silverton Pub at breakfast time with one of the pub dogs following me. The pub has appeared in most of the movies although the name of the pub gets changed for most movies.
Sitting outside the pub is a vehicle from Mad Max. Silverton also has a dedicated Mad Max museum. The dog also appears in WS1 looking up the wide dirt main street of the town.
In WS2 is part of the first Silverton Pub where the very first meeting of the huge BHP mining company board was held.
