The Living Desert is Broken Hill City Council’s contribution to the environment, for the protection of native flora and fauna.
The Living Desert is nestled amongst the Barrier Ranges and is located 12km from the City of Broken Hill. It is a unique 2400ha reserve which was established in 1992.
On top of the highest hill inside the reserve are the 12 sandstone sculptures, created in 1993 by a group of artists from all over the world, which are now one of the top attractions in Outback NSW and a visual representation of Broken Hill’s marriage of art & nature.
There is also The John Simons Flora & Fauna Sanctuary (established in 2002).
