Yes, have driven there - it;s what we call big sky country. Having been a mining town, it's full of history. Some great galleries,etc.there, and yes, Silverton is really interesting. We sat on a hill outside of BH at sunset, it was a beautiful site, with those large sculptures there on the bare landscape. Visited, or passed through 3 times, one year it was green, and I think they'd been a movie crew there waiting to shoot some Mad Max? type movie, but they wanted the bare desert look - green was ot what they wanted. The people we talked to who live there, were really very easy to talk with.
I've never been.
No, I never have. I was intrigued by the description of it in Max Barry's novel, Lexicon, which is interesting but not too flattering (and the book does have the whole town destroyed).
It's definitely worth a visit Jennifer, if youever gt the chance. It is a unique place. And just 25kms away an almost ghost town, Silverton is now a place full of amazing art galleries.
Broken Hill is a mining town, even now the mining goes on. It is an intriguing and interesting place to visit and the people there are amongst the friendliest I have ever encountered. I probably wouldn't choose to live there as it is rather remote. My husband took ill there and had to be flown to Adelaide by the Royal Flying Doctor Service and I made to five hour rod trip solo to catch up.
Never been

Do I want to?

Not really sure.
Yes I have -coming from Sydney I went several times however being so long ago I cannot remember a thing about it!

Also my tastes have changed since I lived in Sydney and what i used to like then, I possibly would not like now, and vice versa.

Yes. Enjoyed it for 'oldness' & Art Gallery . Many paintings there at the time by Jack Absalom.
Can't remember if went on a Mine Tour, or if that was in Mt Isa!
We were on our way to Lake Menindee, to camp. Now THAT was an experience! Probably some of the most picturesque sunsets I've ever seen.
