Brumbies along the road to Silverton, New South Wales Australia. Silverton is set on Silverton Common, a Crown Reserve of about 12 000 acres (4856 hectares). The common has existed for about 125 years, and is administered by the NSW government. Stock can roam on the Common, and in the pic above you can see a couple of brumbies (wild horses), who seem to be doing pretty well. The whole area is semi-arid land.

The Silverton Common is part of an Unincorporated Area of NSW, which is not part of a local council. This Area covers about 93 000 square kilometres and surrounds but does not include Broken Hill. June 2016.
