The parched and barren landscape of Broken Hill is a unique destination that offers a rich blend of history, art, and natural beauty. The city is known for its scenic desert landscapes, silver-mining heritage and showcases the works of local and regional artists.
One place not to miss whilst in Silver City is the living desert sculptures. Started some 20 years back, the installation was the brainchild of Gosford-based sculptor, Lawrence Beck.
My favourite of the many beautiful sculptures has to be Antonio Nava Tirado’s sculpture titled ‘Bajo El Sol Jaguar’ which translates to ‘Under the Jaguar Sun’. Antonio is an Aztec Indian from Mexico City, Mexico.
The best time to visit the symposium is at sunset. With 360-degree views from this prominent hill location it’s bound to be a brilliant end to your day.
