There is everything there is australia and there is "western australia" alot of "australians" who have not seen australia a great deal make alot of silly claims but here are 7 wonders of the worlds largest state. Eureka and Q1 my arse.

Horizontal Waterfalls - The king of all tides.


Ningaloo reef - Most untouched fringing reef in the world and has equal quality and easier diving than the GBR.


Karijini National Park - A Amazing network of gorges and canyons, takes weeks to explore the best parts.


Bungle Bungles - Most amazing group of rocks in the world.
\

Mt Augustus - The worlds Largest rock monolith Is not Uluru. This is two and half times as large. But gets less love?



Lake Argyle - world’s largest man-made body of water.


Sharks Bay - A huge water and land area under world heritage listing, steeming with fish, dolphins, sharks, dugongs and much more. Nothing describes this place.




A crazy fact on the Shark Bay World Heritage Region
The low tidal flow in Shark Bay has created hypersalination, a level of salt twice that of normal seawater. In these salty pools, stromatolites grow at a rate of less than 1mm per year. A microorganism, cyanobacteria build up, trapping fine sediment particles from the warm water and binding it together with mucus. This unusual ‘life form’ grows to about 60cm tall and look like mushroom-shaped rocky domes. The discovery of these ‘living fossils’ was akin to finding a live dinosaur.

Standard Shark Bay Beach.


The Shark Bay World Heritage Area is one of the most important areas on the face of the globe.

My Seven Wonders Of Western Australia. Remember how large australia is and how extreme this single nation is, break it down i say. :)
