The magnificent Broken Hill Sculpture Park is one of the main tourist attractions and icons of the Australian outback. Twelve impressive stone sculptures are situated on a hill located in The Living Desert Reserve in about 10km north of Broken Hill, NSW, Australia. The sculptures were carved in 1993 by artists from around the world, under the direction of organiser and artist Lawrence Beck. The main sculpture on the photo is “Bajo El Sol Jaguar” (Under Jaguar Sun) by Antonio Nava Tirado from Mexico and now it is a symbol of Broken Hill. Broken Hill (also known as ‘The Silver City’) is one destination that should be put on any photographers list as it is not only a beautiful town with its wonderful architecture (and of course people) but it is also provides the perfect base for exploring some of the best attractions in this region of Australia.
