My blog is all about the famous outback Australian National Heritage Listed City named Broken Hill, located in the state of New South Wales. I first visited #BrokenHill in 2002 and have returned many times since then. ilovebrokenhill.com will help you discover what's great about this historic mining city, where in the mid 1880's the line of lode, a rich ore body of silver, lead and zinc was found. You will find stories about anything related to Broken Hill.

Vote for the Sculptures as 8th wonder of the world on virtualtourist

Living Desert Sculpture Symposium
Why not vote for the sculptures at the Living Desert Sculpture Symposium in the vote for the Eighth Wonder of the World competition being run by www.virtualtourist.com between 3 June and 30 September 2013.

See link here to the competition or just go to their website to vote.

If you've seen the sculptures you might agree that they're a worthy entrant, and if you haven't maybe it's time to go and have a look.  What you'll find is a cluster of 12 massive and impressive sandstone sculptures created by sculptors from around the world as well as local artist Badger Bates.  Sunset and sunrise are good times to go, but any time is worth it.  Take a picnic, and don't forget your photographic device of choice.

The Living Desert and Sculpture Park is located about 9 km out of Broken Hill, nestled in the Barrier Ranges on Sundown Hill, just follow Kaolin Street (Nine Mile Road).

I've written about them several times, see links here 15 December 2011, 13 March 2013 and just recently, 8 May 2013 relating to the sculptures 20 year anniversary which was on 23 May 2013.

You can vote more than once, but need a 24 hour interval between votes.  I've voted (for the sculptures of course).

Looking at some of the 'Eighth Wonder' suggestions the competition is very high.

Cheers, Jane D
