We arrived at Millaa Millaa Falls on a hot and humid afternoon feeling pretty frazzled. However, one look at the inviting water and we were in. After getting over the initial shock at how cold the water was, we played happily for some time before emerging with our core temperatures somewhere closer to normal and […]
Although I have never been to Angel Falls I do have a connection to them. My father and our family lived in British Guiana during the 40’s and 50’s. My dad was a government negotiator for part of that time and we lived on Atkinson Field, a former American air base. It was during that […]
One of the most impressive falls we have seen is not on your list. It is the Virginia Falls in the Nahanni National Park in the North West Territories, Canada. It is located 230 km west of Fort Simpson accessible by air. We flew in a twin otter float plane and landed above the falls. […]
I first visited Kalambo Falls in 1956 when I was working as a Government Medical Officer in the nearby town of Abercorn in the Northern Province of Northern Rhodesia, as Zambia was called then. During several subsequent visits at that time I never ceased to be amazed by the sheer beauty and wonder of it […]
Back in 1994 I took a flight out of Barcelona (Puerto La Cruz) Venezuela to Canaima. It was a 3 or 4 hour flight (one way) in an old DC3 aircraft. After landing at Canaima we were taken on a 3 hour long trip through the surrounding area ending up having lunch near the falls […]
All 3 components of the falls are quite beautiful, but the Horseshoe Falls are, in fact, Canadian. Here is some dry, but interesting history: The International Boundary line was established by the Paris Peace Treaty of 1783 and later in the Jay’s Treaty of 1794. The was also agreed to at the Treaty of Ghent […]
I lived in southern Ontario for the first 45 years of my life and visited the falls many, many times. It was always a favourite day trip. It’s fun to go in the summer and get wet as you approach them on a windy day. Just the sound of the water itself is pretty amazing.
Perhaps better known as the “other” waterfall in the Coomera Gorge in Lamington National Park, this 150 metre drop is spectacular in it’s own right.
It would be possible to devote an entire website to the waterfalls of Lamington National Park in Queensland. One of the more spectacular ones is Coomera Gorge, where Coomera Falls (on the left) and Yarrabilgong falls drop into the headwaters of the Coomera River. These falls (along with several others) can be accessed from the […]
I stayed with my friend, a retired school teacher, in Choma for 2 weeks. She had a nice two bedroom brick house. When one lives with a Zambian for two weeks, it is a good idea to give the hostess enough money to buy good food for both of us, as I couldn’t exist on […]
I’ve been visiting Taveuni’s Ravilevu coastline since 1983 and it is truly the land of waterfalls – and I’ve jumped a few in my 64 years of adventure. John “Caveman” Gray
In 1982 when I was young and stupid I sat in the falls and hung my feet over the edge. It was a rush and an awesome sight but not too smart.
In the Fifties, a French couple in Honeymoon drove into the waterfall from the old road (along the tunnel). According to the story the flowers were found floating in the water, giving the name “Brudesløret” to the waterfall (The Bride’s Veil). Both died.
AKASA GANGAI WATER FALLS (Ganges of the Sky) Kolli Hills is a major mountain range and is an outliner of the Eastern Ghats. It is eighteen miles(28 Kilometeres)long (north south) twelve miles(19 Kilometers) wide(east/west). Kolli Hills could be reached through a ghat road which was 70 hairpins bends. The village at the foot hill is […]
Well well….. I didn’t know there is a waterfall in Adelaide, but i was just trying to search for some adventures tracks in SA and i find it… It was awesome when I went to the Waterfall Gully for the first time with some of my friends from India and Sydney… It’s a beautiful place […]
This waterfall is not to be missed. One of my very faves anywhere! I’ve been to it twice – both in May during high snow melt in ’06 & ’07. During those times – the footbridge seems so long and you most likely will get wet. Looking up – it is almost impossible to see […]
I just wanted to add a shot I took of Purlingbrook Falls after recent heavy rain. Also, “Purlingbrook” is actually one word in the name of the falls, and two words (Purling Brook) in the name of the stream. I’m not sure who came up with that idea. The falls do generally flow year-round, although […]
There are many waterfalls at Springbrook National Park in Southern Queensland, but if I had to pick a favourite it would have to be Twin Falls, a 40 metre drop on the Eastern side of the escarpment. The two waterfalls then cascade further down the mountain, as can be seen to good effect from Canyon […]
A small, but elegant waterfall plunging into a cave just outside the village of Durness on Scotland’s north coast. The cave itself is actually the inside of a cliff which is entered from the beach, where the ocean washes up inside a gorge. The gorge and the seafront alone would be worth the visit, but […]
I wanted to share another picture–this time from above the falls.
