Silverton is town 25km north West of Broken hill.
The opening scene and many from Mad Max 2:The Road Warrior were filmed in and around Silverton.
The road just out past Silverton, towards Mundi Mundi plain, was used in many shots, primarily the opening chase, and the final truck wreck. The truck is initially parked at the Mundi Mundi lookout.
