This location was selected beacause of it’s expansive outback views to be a site for an international sculpture symposium. Some of the sculptures are quite stunning and all of them have the story written up about the artist who created each piece. Artists from all...More

Nice sculpting done by all artists. Good scenery around the area. Overall it wasn’t for me as I’m not a big art person but worth the trip to see them IF you are.

This attraction had great reviews but with young kids I didn’t really rate it, the sculptures were cool and it was nice to see the sunset, I think it would be more enjoyable if I went without the kids

Located 9km out of town. Arrive there half an hour before sunset then you can get beautiful colors and breathtaking panoramic views.

A short drive out of town to this hill with about a dozen sandstone boulders shaped or engraved with various motifs. Amateur work of variable quality, but pleasant desert views.

We went two evenings in a row at sunset as we had enjoyed it so much. The second evening had a lot more cloud but this made the colours even more beautiful. It is as much for the tranquillity of the setting as for the...More

a short drive from Broken Hill, this is well worth a visit. Perched atop a small knob in this amazing landscape you will find a group of fascinating sandstone sculptures by various artisans...we found the whole experience very appealing.

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
