Karijini Hancock Gorge Regan's Pool
Australia

This is Regan's Pool. There is really only two ways to get down there and appreciate it's beauty: this section of the Hancock Gorge is class 6, which means that you can only get there if you're a certified climber with proper climbing/abseiling equipment AND skills, or you get in touch with Pete from West Oz Active and join the group of canyoneers and he'll take care of the technical side of things for you. The latter will of course cost you money, but I highly recommend it - it's great fun.

I personally did both: went with West Oz Active first, but then decided to go with the gear again couple of days later, and take my time while waiting for the best light. It really paid off: the shots I've taken on the first visit didn't come up anywhere near the quality of the second one.
Do not attempt to climb down the waterfall in order to get to the pool - not without proper equipment anyway! You will sustain an injury or kill yourself if you try to do so. Look again at the panorama: there's about 3.5 meters from the edge of the waterfall to the pool with a big overhang below, and even if you survive the fall, you will not be able to go back and will need to be rescued.
If that doesn't convince you, I recommend doing some reading about where the name "Regan's Pool" comes from.

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.
