    Horries falls in Talbot island

    Nature always conjures up new ways to surprise humans. And most of them are so unusual and ridiculously cool like these horizontal falls in Australia that we have option but to be awestruck!.

    Up until now, you must have only seen vertical waterfalls falling from a cliff. Talbot Bay, located on the coast of Kimberley, is where you will find Australia’s most unusual natural wonder. Nicknamed as ‘Horries’, these are the only horizontal waterfalls to exist on the planet earth. How cool, right?

    Another trick up nature’s sleeve, these unusual waterfalls are the result of unique tidal movements when the turquoise water squeezes through two narrow gorges. The water banks up on one side of the cliff of the McLarty Range and flows through a short passageway in a rapid speed creating a waterfall-like appearance. You will also notice that these waterfalls turn sideways.

    The coolness doesn’t end here, guys!

    Every day, when the tide turns, the water begins to flow in the opposite direction. So the falls are not just horizontal, they are ‘reversible’ too. Say what?!
