NSW trade hall on UNESCO shortlist

A trade hall in Broken Hill in outback New South Wales is in the running to be included on the UNESCO world heritage list.

The building dates back to the 1890s and is one of three Australian union buildings on the shortlist for a new UNESCO list celebrating the international labour movement.
The Broken Hill building is already on the national heritage list, and supporters are hopeful this will add to the building’s chances.
The other two Australian candidates for the list are union halls in Sydney and Melbourne.
