Lake Ballard is an ephemeral salt lake in the Goldfields-Esperance area of Western Australia about 50 kilometres (31 mi) West of Menzies.
In 2003, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Perth International Arts Festival the Inside Australia exhibition was commissioned. The artist and Turner Prize winner Antony Gormley installed 51 sculptures over an area of 10 square kilometres (4 sq mi) on the bed of the lake. The statues were to be removed at the conclusion of the festival but remain as a tourist exhibition.
