Karijini National Park - Hancock Gorge
Australia

A group of adventurous travellers decide to tackle some of the more inaccessible parts of Karijini National Park. Many of the areas of this park have restricted access and can only be reached with the use of ropes and other special equipment. Here the group is climbing out of an area known as ‘the centre of the earth’ which is the deepest part of any of the gorges in the park.

For anyone that has visited Karijini National Park this area is between the start of the restriced access of Hancock Gorge (at Kermits Pool) and Junction Pool (which can be seen from the metal platform near the car park at Hancock Gorge.

The photographer had an amazing day floating his camera equipment through the gorges of Karijini. It’s a little different seeing your expensive camera dropped down an 8 meter waterfall!

    More About Australia

    There are no kangaroos in Austria. We're talking about Australia, the world's smallest continent. That being cleared up, let's dive right in! Australia is a sovereign state under the Commonwealth of Nations, which is in turn overseen by Queen Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, Queen of Australia and Her other Realms and Territories, Head of the Commonwealth. The continent was first sighted and charted by the Dutch in 1606. Captain James Cook of Britain came along in the next century to claim it for Britain and name it "New South Wales." Shortly thereafter it was declared to be a penal colony full of nothing but criminals and convicts, giving it the crap reputation you may have heard at your last cocktail party. This rumor ignores 40,000 years of pre-European human history, especially the Aboriginal concept of Dreamtime, an interesting explanation of physical and spiritual reality. The two biggest cities in Australia are Sydney and Melbourne. Sydney is more for business, Melbourne for arts. But that's painting in very broad strokes. Take a whirl around the panoramas to see for yourself! Text by Steve Smith.
