The waters of Fortescue Falls cascade all year long from the rim of Dales Gorge in Western Australia’s Karijini National Park.
This was our glamping tent home in Karijini. Every night, as soon as the sun went down, the stars came out! There was very little ambient light.
I have read that seen from space, Australia’s prominent features are low-lying plains and basins covering millions of square miles. But the continent’s deep river gorges are spotted everywhere with extraordinary waterfalls. Tolmer and Wangi Falls are situated close to each other in Western Australia’s Litchfield National Park.
Random twigs may reach out here and there to impede the progress of the arrow-straight wisps of water. But the falls continue to cascade down, down, down over the rock face of a gorge in eastern Australia.
The spot behind the curtain is snug and secure. Standing under the rock crevice listening to the water wash down from above gives feeling of quiet and separation from everything on the other side.

This cascading shower nestled in an Australian rainforest plunges its way through thick jungle vines, over a rock ledge, and into a small, dark pool.
Light and water find their path through the rock and descend together behind a natural bridge in eastern Australia.
Delicate but persistent, the tumbling streams wind their way down to the forest floor.
