Where is it?
51km west of Menzies, 680km north-east of Perth
How to see it for yourself?
Follow the Goldfields Highway from Kalgoorlie to Menzies before turning left at a well-signposted service station onto a gravel road heading northwest.Continue a further 50km to the sign posted turn to Lake Ballard car park. From there, visitors can walk throughout the 10-square-kilometre salt lake, featuring the Inside Australia exhibit by Antony Gormley. There are 51 sculptures in total, said to represent local members of the community. This shot was taken near the visitor entrance and shows Snake Hill in the background, about 600m from the lake edge.
Why I love it
“When you get there you realise it isn’t just the sculptures that you are viewing – the whole setting is an artscape. As you walk from one sculpture to the next you leave footprints on the salt, which is part of the artwork; man connected to man, connected to the environment. This is a magnificent art site in a magnificent location.” – Jac Eerbeek, Australia’s Golden Outback
