Mungo National Park is a special place for me, and not just because it is overwhelmingly beautiful, but also due to the fact that it was the first NSW Outback place I’ve travelled to – this was the beginning, beginning of my long never ending plan to see every corner of Australia.
White Cliffs features one of the most unexpected landscapes in the middle of arid and deserted lands of the New South Wales Outback – thousands of opal mine shafts create a lunar landscape that stretches far beyond the horizon.
There are four points in the Australian mainland where the border lines of various states intersect and form corners: Survey’s General Corner (WA, NT, SA border), Poeppel’s Corner (NT, SA, QLD border), Haddon Corner (SA and QLD border) and Cameron Corner – NSW, QLD and SA border.
Do you speak Navajo? If not, then you are like me and probably didn’t know that “Tse’ bighanilini” means “the place where the water runs through the rock” and is a name of one of the most amazing places in the world. Unlike many others, it is a simple and meaningful name, however, it doesn’t explain why this canyon is so popular and attracts hundreds of tourists each day.
Intense colours – these two words always come to my mind when I think about Australian Outback – red soil and incredibly clear deep blue sky mixed with ancient landscapes create amazing scenery. If you add some lakes and rivers to this mix, you get something even more outstanding – and I will not be surprised if it was one of the unofficial reasons why Menindee Lakes System was constructed …
Australian Outback will always be one of my favourite places to travel to – this huge almost deserted land is covered by various natural and human-made gems which, I believe, must be visited by any conscious traveller. Yes, distances between these places are great, but it only adds more fun to it.
White Cliffs Power Station is located in the small outback town White Cliffs in the middle of NSW outback, 280 kilometres from Broken Hill and 1000 kilometres from Sydney.
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?
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.
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!
