Bells Milk Bar and Museum is located in Patton Village, South Broken Hill, the Patton Street shopping precinct. We’re directly opposite Patton Street Park, right next door to the post office in the middle of the group of shops. Look for the alien and space ship on the roof!

By Bus

Occasional busses run (approx every hour) from town to South Broken Hill and back again. Sometimes busses may run infrequently or stop at a certain time so be sure to check with current schedules if you choose this option.

By Foot or Bicycle

Bells is approx. 3.5kms from the town centre and while walking is possible, be sure you are well prepared if you choose this method. Temperatures

in Broken Hill can be pretty extreme so be aware of this if you plan to walk or bike to Bells and make adequate preparations. Of course, there’s nothing like a traditional malted milk or soda spider after a spot of exercise.

By Taxi

Just mention Bells to any local taxi driver and they’ll have you here quicker than you can say “Bells drinks are out of this world!”
