We're off to Broken Hill, we're off to Broken Hill!


We're off to Broken Hill for glittering good times at the Broken Heel Festival on September 8–10 2017! Get packing with this fun list of fabulous essentials.

Here at AAMI, we're proud to sponsor one of Australia's most iconic cultural festivals – Broken Heel. Taking place in Broken Hill, the spiritual home of Priscilla Queen of the Desert, it's the biggest bang in Australia, sweeties! But just because you're going on a desert holiday, doesn't mean you need to pack your drag away – quite the contrary! Here's our must-pack guide to getting your party on at the Broken Heel Festival.

Boa up, babes

Remember, gals: don't leave your boas in the Silver Stiletto Train! Your journey to the heart of fabulous won't be quite the same without a big, feathery fashion statement floating around your neck. But don't stop there. Up the ante with a lot of lippy and some extra bling and you'll sashay straight to the front of this authentic Aussie drag race.

Think pink

From champagne to acrylic nails and sparkly stilettos, pink is the colour that keeps on giving. Whether it's hot pink, pale pink or pretty pastels, be sure to get drop-dead gorgeous in an outfit and accessories awash with your favourite shade. Are you a diehard Priscilla fan? Try kitting out your very own big pink bus for a not-to-forget disco tour of the desert – because life in the outback is never a drag!

Frock up!

Dress to impress in your favourite frock, ladies! Whether you're doing a lap of the Broken Hill main drag in drag, belting out ABBA's greatest hits on the dance floor or bunny-hopping all the way to Alice, life's more fun when you're looking fabulous. Hit the shops so you can be Broken Heel ready in your favourite frocks – and don't forget your fishnets, darl.

Curl, please!

Steel the spotlight by getting a head – of curls that is! Big hair and bigger personalities reign supreme at Broken Heel Festival. You'll laugh so hard your lashes will curl all by themselves! Whether you're planning to bring back the bouffant, tease those tendrils to tomorrow, or wear a spectacular hat or headpiece, the aim is to flip your wig and party down with the very best drag queens (and kings) in the country.

It's sparkle city

This festival is jam-packed with fun, laughter and all things fabulous – and that means sparkles and sequins, baby! Shine brighter than the silver city itself by dressing to the nines and going gangbusters on that dazzling eye make-up. Add some body shimmer and you'll twinkle like a desert star. Here's to glittering good times!

Heel thyself

Drag divas all over the country are getting ready to don their heels for the biggest bash of the year on the Silver Stiletto Train! If you like to party hard, don't forget to bring a few spare pairs just in case you break a heel. Oh, snap!

Be a DJ, darling

It's not a proper party without the perfect soundtrack. Even if you don't have a musical bone in your body, you can download a pre-made playlist! Keep an eye out on the AAMI Facebook page for the #OffToBrokenHill Spotify playlist with fabulous drag anthems and road trip favourites selected by DJ Kitty Glitter. And don't forget you can be off to Broken Heel for real or virtually with our fabulous snapchat filter. Open Snapchat and snap or scan the code above to share a pic.
