Broken Hill, in the state’s far west, is famous for two things – mining silver and defying expectations. There’s its celebration of drag (queens, not cars) and a thriving arts scene that led to the Living Desert Reserve, nine kilometres out of town. The reserve includes a flora-andfauna sanctuary and the Sculpture Site, featuring a dozen striking sandstone works. Created on a hilltop in 1993 by artists from around the world, each of the sculptures has a story to tell and they share it best when the sun begins to set over the rocky outcrops. Check out the reserve when you’re in town for the Broken Heel Festival a riotous event for all things drag that kicked off after the Palace Hotel featured in The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.
