I always marvel at how creative and arty nature can be while creating tourist attractions for us. Isn’t it amazing how a relatively small amount of rock, placed in the right place, can force a river to make a twist like this?
Kangaroo Island’s abundance of wildlife and natural wonders attract hundreds of thousands tourists each year, one of those natural attractions is the Admiral’s Arch, located on the island’s western coast.
I must confess that for some unknown to me reason I really like canyons, especially narrow ones – so you can only imagine how fascinated I felt being in a such remarkable and famous place like Antelope Canyon.
Antelope Canyon has two narrow sections, which attract enormous interests among tourists and photographers – Lower and Upper Antelope Canyons.
Up until June 2009, every time when I saw an image of the Monument Valley, saw it in the movie or read an article about this great place, I was telling to myself that one day I’d definitely visit this great area. Fortunately it is not the case anymore – another great location pinned and marked on the world map.
If you happened to be in Katoomba or Leura region of the Blue Mountains on the wet and rainy day – don’t miss Leura Cascades, if you are lucky, they will be filled with water and present a truly nice view.

I think that it is very rare when a name of the national park actually describes what you are going to see in that location. This park is one of those literally named places: here, you will see … arches, and lots of them – there are more than 2000 registered natural sandstone arches. Just think about it – not one, not ten, not even hundred – more than two thousands!
Canyons, slots, gorges, mesas, buttes, arches … and other strangly named rock formations created by millions of years of erosion – all of this without any trouble can be found in the Canyonlands National Park, all in one place. Combined together it creates some of the most outstading landscapes I have ever seen.
Visible within 35 kilometer radius, this small lighthouse in Sydney’s North battles the elements and weather since its’ construction in 1881.
The first light at this location has been registered in 1855, back then a fire was raised in a basket to guide ships through stormy conditions.
Moab region is a truly astonishing place – in addition to its’ natural beauty, magnificent lookouts and heaven for landscape photographers, Moab took care of its’ history and preserved numerous examples of an ancient rock art.
