HEAD to Broken Hill next March to check out the latest addition to the Out of the Ordinary Outback resorts portfolio.

Work is underway on the $5m development of the new Outback Resort cabin, caravan and camping park which surrounds Broken Hill's historic Mt Gipps Hotel.

The hotel, built in 1890, but closed since 1987, is being restored and will boast a bar, restaurant and reception when the resort opens in late March 2018.

The Barrier Highway property will also feature a swimming pool.

Close by is the popular Outback Astronomy tourist attraction which offers guided views of the stars at night.

Out of the Ordinary Outback owner and passionate bush lover Scott Smith dreamt of reviving the abandoned building for the enjoyment of outback holidaymakers. 

"The old Mt Gipps Hotel is a beautiful heritage building that was crying out for some love and care," Mr Smith said.

"Our plan is to make it the handsome centrepiece of this new outback resort and breathe new life into the building and add colour and interest to holidaymakers travelling through the far west of NSW. 

"Guests at the Broken Hill Outback Resort will be able to stay among the vast frontier country for which the outback is famous, with its big skies and never-ending horizons, with Broken Hill just a 10-minute drive away."

A new website for bookings at the Broken Hill Outback Resort will be launched later this year.
