Ash is taking advantage of the open spaces to get a feel of driving. There are lots of off road opportunities out here.

Living Sculpture Garden, Broken Hill
This afternoon Carmel and I visited the the Living Sculpture Garden on a hill overlooking Broken Hill. (You can see the town faintly in the feature picture.)
Unfortunately it as cold, windy and about the rain while we were up there, so we did not spend very long. (It seems odd that the rain on this trip was at Kings Canyon, Uluru and Broken Hill.)
On a good day, the hill would be worth a walk.
Visit to Silverton
Silverton is an abandoned mining town that has discovered as new life as a movie set. It has appeared in many movies that I do not recognise, but I did see “A Town like Alice”. Their big movie was Mad Max 2. Ash, Carmel and I visited the museum.
The museum had a number of the vehicles from the movie, mostly stunt doubles and fragments from crashes.
I must confess I saw the movie but cannot remember much detail. I think we need a Mad Max a-Thon when we return to Sydney.
We reached the souvenir store but there was a queue head of us.
These tame donkeys are a bit of a tourist attraction – they feature on the Silverton facebook page. Ash could not resist a selfie!
