These sculptures are such a unique and unexpected site to see. A lot of intesest in using art and naturally occuring items. So unusual to see in the outback.

We really enjoyed seeing these sculptures and the stories behind each one. They were displayed in an easy way to see them. It's not far out of Broken Hill but you need to drive to get there.

Unless you have an active interest in art and sculptures, save yourself the $6pp entry fee. Although the sunset was quite nice from here.

The sculptures, information on them and the way they have been set up unbelievable. The drive to them, set on a hill overlooking the desert is an experience in itself. They have been positioned to give sunset a new meaning. The automatic ticket machine at...More

Happily, the sculptures were easy to access by car, and were very interesting to see. Unfortunately, we were not able to go up and view them by the setting sun, which I can imagine would have been really something... the 360 degree panoramic view from...More

This was wonderful! The sun reflecting on the sandstone and the eerie peacefulness of the location and all around specatcular view as the sun set. A family favourite!

I would get there at least half hour. We got there about 15mins before the sunset and there was a bus load of ppl there so was hard with some getting i the way or not moving at all. But you definitely wont be disappointed
