The Battle of Broken Hill was a fatal incident which took place near Broken Hill, New South Wales, on 1 January 1915.

Two men shot dead four people and wounded seven more, before being killed by police and military officers.

Though politically and religiously motivated, the men were not members of any sanctioned armed force and the attacks were criminal. The two men were later identified as Muslim "Ghans" from the British colony of India, modern day Pakistan.
