Nature's Window, Kalbarri, Western Australia

Another of the popular attractions at Kalbarri in West Australia’s north is Nature’s Window. This must have been photographed dozens of times over the years. It is a bit of a climb to get to it but not too bad and it’s well worth the effort. We drove a few kilometres from the skywalk to this attraction. Later, we went on further to another gorge. You can see the Murchison River through the opening. Last time we were there we spotted some feral goats on the sides of the canyon. We also saw an echidna but we weren’t so lucky this time.

Beautiful view from the top, it was worth climbing up there to take the photo.

This climb was not nearly as difficult as some we did.

@LadyDuck Thanks. It was taken some years ago. Most people like to have their photo taken in the 'window'.

Lovely view, but not sure I'd stand under that arch!

It's too small to stand under. I have an idea the notice suggests you don't sit too far under it either but everyone perches there for a photo. This one is from a previous visit.

@Ronrybs Sometimes you need a person or object so you can gauge the size of something.

I have seen the pictures of this before. At the time my thought was, this is what needs to be studied for preventing floods and land slides. We can identify where exactly the force is going to be more and open it up upfront so that the water or air can go without flooding or causing any major damage. Stress and strain thing. And then I forgot about it, like many things. LOL. Thanks for reminding that once in a while I do get seemingly intelligent thoughts.

Are you saying the flood waters or whatever could go through the hole? Thankfully the water would never get this high.

@JudyEv I am saying if there is a barrier, the pressure will build up more. And that could give in sometime in a big way. But if the behavior of water was studied, and all that came into its path to direct its flow, then we could create a hole like that window on some obstructions for the energy to dissipate. That way, the loss would be minimal.

@vandana7 Thanks for the explanation and your argument sounds very logical. Flowing water is very powerful.

It is such a magnificent architecture of nature,seems as if defying the law of gravity in some way.

They do ask you not to climb on the top but it seems very solid and stable.

Are they not mountain goats Miss Judy? The feral goats you mentioned?

Not really. They are just domestic goats that have been released or got away and are now wild.

The window looks like a boot .Judging from the layers of rock,it belongs to Sedimentary Rock.

You're right. I hadn't noticed it before but the opening does look like a boot.
