Sculpture Symposium Walking Track
Starting from the Living Desert Picnic Area car park, Broken Hill, this walk lets you examine the sculptures from all around the world via the Sculpture Symposium Walking Track. Back in 1993, Lawrence Beck (sculptor from Gosford) organised a symposium where artists from all around the globe sculpted 12 sandstone sculptures that complement the surrounding landscape. There are interpretive signs for each one, so read away if you have the time. Visit at sunset to see the colours change and the light hit the sculptures from different angles. Although, you can examine the sculptures more in-depth during the day as it'll be much brighter. Besides the structures are the 360-degree panoramic views, letting you see tens of kilometres into the outback. There's a $6 per person entry fee as of September 2022. Keep in mind that you can also park near the sculptures and significantly shorten the track. The reserve opens at 6 AM in the summer, and 8:30 AM otherwise. Closing time is approximately 30 minutes after sunset regardless of the season. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
