Where is it?  Near the NT border 300km south of Kununurra, the creek cuts through Purnululu National Park, past the Bungle Bungles

How to see it for yourself?
This picture was captured at the end of Piccaninny Gorge, which visitors can access on a hike of two to seven days via spinifex-covered grasslands and a lookout over the domes. Walkers must be fully prepared as they’ll encounter fallen boulders and loose rocks, and there is no reliable drinking water along the way. Register at the visitor centre for more info.
Why I love it

“As the sun rises, the awe-inspiring domes of the Bungle Bungles massif are reflected with unwavering precision in the waters of a pool at the end of Piccaninny Gorge. Weathered over millennia into amazing formations of bandedstone, the domes rise like a stupendous city  in the remote north-east of WA. This pool, photographed at the end of the wet season, is likely to last only a month or so before the heat dries it to bare rock. But in the meantime, it awaits the dawning of a new day, adding tranquillity to the harsh world it so delicately mirrors.” – Ken Duncan
