Steep track to the Sculptures, Living Desert, Broken Hill, New South Wales, Australia

Steep track to the Sculptures, Living Desert, Broken Hill, New South Wales, Australia. The track to the Broken Hill Sculptures in the Living Desert just outside Broken Hill is quite steep. In places steep enough they had to seal it to prevent erosion causing dangerous sections. I made it to the top, all 900 metres of it but only because there were a number of seats provided to rest along the way. I couldn't have got down, though. A friendly ranger gave me a lift from the carpark at the top back to my car.

The Overlander is available to experience now. Ring -- 0433 122 798 -- to make an appointment.

Pew with a view, Living Desert, Broken Hill, New South Wales, Australia

Pew with a view! That was a hard walk, with a number of necessary rest stops on the thoughtfully provided seats. The Overlander 4ZX would have made it much easier to experience, and given me the ability to examine the Broken Hill Sculptures in much greater detail.

Created by Valerian Jikaya, he describes his work as a 'device to measure time and light'. The eastern face reflects the moon; the western face the sun. Valerian sometimes worked at night to get the the right shadows for his sculpture. June 2016.

The Horse Sculpture, Broken Hill Sculptures, Living Desert, Broken Hill, New South Wales, Australia

The Horse Sculpture, Broken Hill Sculptures, Living Desert, Broken Hill, New South Wales, Australia. The Horse Sculpture was done by Jumber Jikaya, who was President of the Georgian Sculpture Society. The sculpture is a tribute to horses, and particularly to the Georgian horse breed. June 2016.

The bridle bit in the horse's mouth was created by Allan Carr, a retired blacksmith, who also kept all the tools of the sculptors sharp using an old fashioned manual grinding wheel. It is the contributions of people like Allan who make such projects possible

The other walk trail in the living desert is the Cultural Walk through the nature an wildlife reserve. At 2.5 km long it is beyond my ability to walk. When we visit Broken Hill again with my Overlander I will be able to explore this track properly!

You can begin to dream again, too! Check out the Overlander 4ZX here.
