Karijini National Park - Handrail Pool
Australia

Karijini National Park is one of Australia’s many amazing National Parks, it is mostly famous for its unique gorges. At the Western end of the park is Weano Gorge (seen here). Handrail pool, so named due to the handrail to help people climb down into it is close to the end of the public access of this gorge. To reach the end of Weano gorge with any sort of safety, special equipment is required. The water in Weano Gorge flows out into Red Gorge as the spectacular (and seldom seen due to the inaccessibility) Weano Falls.

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.
