Puketui was a bustling gold mining settlement established around the turn of the century in the Broken Hills.
A campground now occupies the site of the township. Several walks lead to historic relics including the Broken Hills battery site, an underground jail, and underground mine tunnels such as the 500m long Collins Drive (Golden Hills Mine area) which you can walk through– remember to bring a torch!
