Sunset over the Living Desert

I recently witnessed the most amazing sunset in the Barrier Ranges near Broken Hill. It’s easy to see why so many artists, including Pro Hart, have been inspired by the incredible colours of this landscape.

The Living Desert Reserve includes a Flora and Fauna Sanctuary, which is surrounded by a predator-proof fence. The Sanctuary has been set up to preserve the plants and animals in the reserve, and the Aboriginal heritage of the area.
