This is a new and exciting tourist attraction that has been constructed east of Esperance, in Western Australia.
Some 137 granite stones quarried by the AustralAsian Granite company adjacent to the Beale’s property have taken 14 months to complete. It is a complete replica to scale of the original “Stonehenge” in the UK. The 10 Trilithon stones in a horseshoe pattern weigh between 38 -55 tonnes each. Standing with the 18 tonne lintel to a height of 7.7 metres. Inside the Trilithon horseshoe stands another horseshoe of 19 blue stones. The Trilithon stones are surrounded by a circle of 30 Sarsen Stones weighing 28 tonnes each and standing almost 5 metres high including the 7 tonne lintels on top. Standing between the Sarsen and the Trilithon stones is a full circle of 40 smaller stones. The altar stone lies in front of the tallest Trilithon stones. The structure is aligned with the summer solstice-sunrise in the southern hemisphere- Esperance WA. The station stones are positioned on this line to allow the suns rays to pass through to the altar.
