We visited the park in April 2018. It had been very dry in the area for a very long time. - in the 4 months prior to our arrival they'd had about 5mm. Because of that the park isn't looking it's best. In saying that, it's a great example of what outback Australia is really like - dry, harsh and rugged. Anything that lives out here needs to be tough. It's remarkable anything can survive given the extremes of temperature, pitiful amounts of rain and lack of soil. In saying that, there is plenty of flora and fauna to see if you look. We saw lots of birds (added 2 new species to my list), roos, and lizards. There are well marked paths, good signage and a large picnic area with table and chairs, bbqs and toilets. If you walk around the flora park area make sure you take water, particularly in the warmer months.
The sculptures are also worth a look. You can drive up to the parking area (take the first turn right after the pay booth) or take the path up from the picnic area - its about 1 km, well surfaced but a steady climb so not for the unfit. Some very interesting pieces with equally interesting stories about the artists who came from all around the world. We didn't visit at sunset but I would imagine it would be spectacular.

To get the most out of this visit just before sunset. Easy access and amazing 360 degree vista's. Watching a spectacular sunset from here was lovely. Another time we visited we got to watch a great display of surrounding lightning show.

We arrranged to be at the sculptures at sunset and we're able to experience a wonderful hot evening in the outback. Well worth the trip out of Broken Hill to view the sandstone sculptures and the living park.

Well worth the drive out to the Living Desert State Park. Good facilities to take a picnic. Need to wear suitable shoes for walking. Impressive set up for the fauna and flora areas.
