Waterfalls in Australia
Australia Waterfalls are not what most people associate with the land “down under.” But they’re bountiful in the country and continent of Australia and they’re amongst the country’s scenic features that delight nature lovers like us. Indeed, Australia means many things to different people. While obvious associations and stereotypes include kangaroos, the Great Barrier Reef, Sydney Harbour, and even Crocodile Dundee, I think of the country in terms of its vastness and variety of its waterfalls.
Julie and I have found Australia Waterfalls in places such as the barren expanse of the red deserts of the Outback (such as the Pilbara and Kimberley), the swampy crocodile lands of the Top End, the tropical rainforests of Far North Queensland (including the Atherton Tablelands), the temperate forests featuring giant trees in Southern Western Australia as well as the Otways in Victoria, the majestic Blue Mountains, and even the unpredictable yet largely unspoiled island of Tasmania.
An often overlooked fact about the country is that it is just as big and as vast as the Continental United States. Thus, the country experiences vastly different climates depending on where you are. As a result, Australia Waterfalls are unique in character and very different from others we’ve been to in other parts of the world.
Then, there’s the diversity that we really embraced in our visits. Everything from the landscape to the food to the people and even the wildlife that really made us think of Australia as almost a second home. Not only do we enjoy meat pies, sticky date, the “no worries” attitude, and especially Triple J Radio, but if we were ever fortunate enough to choose a country to move to, Julie and I agree that this would probably be the one country that would come closest to what we’re used to back in the States.
Besides, given its size, you can’t see all of the Australia Waterfalls in one trip. In fact, Julie and I have already made multiple visits to the country, and we realize that we’re going to have to keep coming back over and over again in order to continue adding to our waterfalls survey (while becoming more and more immersed in Australia’s culture). Indeed, with each visit, we’ve found that it became harder to leave, and we suspect it could have the same effect on you, too!
