... you squint you can kind of make out the profile of Queen Victoria.
The walk back up was obviously more challenging than on the way down. The temperatures were rising too.

These cliffs are made from sand and are carved by the wind and the water to give you the swirls and patterns that we see today. The water levels are a little low right now so you can see where the water line is from previous years. Our guide was very knowledgeable and very friendly. I got some great ...
