Surveyors Pool
Australia

Surveyors Pool is located in a remote part of the Kimberley region of Western Australia on the Mitchell Plateau. It is a long drive to get there from any of Australia’s main highways, first you must travel along the Gibb River Road for several hundred kilometres and then turn North towards Kalumburu, a few hundred kilometres up this road the a side track goes West towards Mitchell Falls.

This photo was taken around noon on a very hot October day. The temperature was around the 42c mark and on the walk to the pool there was very little shade. It would have been great to have been able to jump into the pool from the very rock that this photo was taken but the pool is claimed to be the home of a few salt water crocodiles, so swimming in below the water falls is not recommended.
I’m unable to find any information about who named the pool Surveyor’s Pool. If anyone has more information please contact me, you can find my email address on my profile page.

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.
