This is the Southern Rockhole at Nitmiluk – Katherine Gorge in Australia’s Northern Territory during the wet season. It dries to much less than this during the dry!

I was quite lucky to see it as I booked a gorge cruise and was the only person on it. Which gave us some extra time so the guide took me to this extra stop which was the highlight of the cruise. It’s well hidden and a nice serene spot in contrast to the brown water racing down the Katherine River.

Only annoying thing – just as I Was getting on the boot I realised my polariser was in the car! Duh! Would have been nice to have had the water as clear as it actually was.
