Gravity-defying natural wonders
David Attenborough once described the two inlets of Talbot Bay as "Australia's most unusual natural wonder", as the sheer force of the ocean powering into these inlets via a very narrow gap in the cliffs causes a white water effect, much like a waterfall. Indeed, this is one of the largest tidal changes in the world, as the water can rise and fall upward of 10 metres in a few hours.
