Where better to leave a Love Lock than in 'Lock-Heart'!
A love lock, sometimes known as a love padlock, is a padlock which couples lock on to a significant object to symbolise their love. After the padlock is locked, the key is thrown away to symbolise their unbreakable love.
As proof of their love, visitors to Lockhart can fix padlocks to the beautiful Lockhart Love Locks, a fabulous structure on the edge of the town centre overlooking Brookong Lagoon. Their love is locked together in a symbol of eternity, and we do mean eternity. To ensure everlasting love, visitors can throw the key into our wonderful Love Lock Wishing Well. Just 'Make a Wish, Throw the Key, the Magic shall last for Eternity'....
