In the Litchfield National Park you’ll find an amazing scenery made by termites!
In today’s picture you see an example of magnetic termite mounds. No, it’s not a graveyard. 😉 Doesn’t it look unique? Some of the mounds are small, others are quite big, even about two meters tall.
In Australia, I learnt that not each “kangaroo” is a kangaroo. 😀
There are different kinds of kangaroo, but generally speaking kangaroos are “big kangaroos”. “Smaller kangaroos (intermediate size)” are called wallaroos and “small kangaroos” are wallabies.
In Australia, you’ll find many many waterfalls! One of the most stunning ones is Wallaman Falls from the Wet Tropics UNESCO World Heritage Area. Wallaman Falls is the highest single-drop waterfall in Australia (268 meters).
If you’re in Sydney, don’t miss Blue Mountains; you can drive there in about two hours. 🙂
Blue Mountains is a nice area for hiking or relaxing. You can find here many plants in a forest, rock formations, cliffs, caves, waterfalls, etc.
“The Twelve Apostles” are limestone pillars. You’ll find them along the Great Ocean Road. However, there are not 12, some of them already collapsed. Well, it’s still a very nice coastal area and scenic drive; worth visiting!
The Great Barrier Reef is one of the main attractions in Australia. It’s the world’s largest coral reef and simply stunning! It’s an unforgettable experience to snorkel or dive there. However, there is also a sad part about it, people often kill the reef simply by touching it! So please, be careful while observing any reef.
Dingo is a name of a native Australian dog.
When I was in Australia, I didn’t really expect to meet dingo, but we’re lucky to spot them. Dogs look friendly, but they’re still wild animals, so it’s better not to play with them etc.!
p.s. Do you know what dingo dogs like to eat?
I’ll show you on the 17th of January. 😉
