The Esperance Stonehenge is the only full size replica of the original Stonehenge in the UK. It appears as the original would have looked around 1950BC. It consists of 137 stones of Esperance Pink Granite that were all quarried locally less than 1km from the stonehenge’s final resting place. The natural stone provides an energetic feel and the circular shape amplifies sound. It is a truly amazing sight to behold and a magical experience!
10 Inner Trilithon Stones form a horseshoe and weight between 28-50 tonnes each with an 18 tonne lintel laying over each pair reaching a height of 8 metres.
Inside the Trilithon Horseshoe stands another smaller horseshoe of 19 blue stones.
Lying at the base of the tallest Trilithon Stone lies the Altar Stone which weighs 9 tonne.
Outside the Trilithon Horseshoe lies a circle of 40 smaller stones that are referred to as the Bluestone Circle.
The perimeter consists of 30 Sarsen Stones weighing 28 tonnes each with 8 tonne lintels lining the top. Together they reach a height of nearly 5 metres.
Summer / Winter Solstice
The Stonehenge was built to align with the Solstices here in Esperance. On the morning of the Summer Solstice (21st or 22nd December) the suns rays align with the Heel Stones and shine through to the altar stone. The sunset of the Winter Solstice (21st June) repeats the same alignment in reverse. Both are an amazing sight to witness.
