In Western Australia, after Perth continues north, the long road winds along the Indian Ocean, lonely heading towards the unknown in the distance.
How do you describe it?
It resembles a ribbon, cleverly decorating the gleaming sea to the west; it’s like a blue sky stretched out lazily and accidentally touched the horizon in the distance. The fine sun shone on the scorching asphalt road, and stepped north to step on the light and shadow. The bushes were dotted with small orange flowers, and the whole air was filled with the smell of citrus.
Western Australia is located in the western part of the Australian mainland and borders the Indian Ocean. The area is equivalent to the whole of Western Europe and accounts for one third of Australia’s total area. It is the largest state in Australia. The state has many deserts, salt lakes, vast land and sparse populations, and is rich in minerals. The natural scenery and ecological environment still retain the original state. It is the state with the most primitive natural landscapes in Australia, one of the most Australian-style regions, and Australia The richest state.
A sunny Saturday was another perfect day for us in Western Australia. The only thing that makes people feel uncomfortable and uncoordinated is that thousands of ghostly limestone pillars stand up on the vast sandy beach, plunging into the sky, giving people a gloomy feeling.
Australia is famous for its unique rock formations. But there is nothing more striking than this weird and shocking Pinnacles Desert.
In Australia, people have long wondered about all kinds of strange geology and their rare names. Uluru Giant Rock, Banguluru Banguru in Purnululu National Park, Brombal Rock in Canberra, these world-famous The landscape has long been known. Pinnacles are exceptionally different. Compared to others, they are “spikes”.
“This is a very special place. The expansive limestone, unique colors, rare desert landscapes … and so close to Perth.” Corolla Wessorren, chief explorer of Perth Travel Agency, told us, ” I often tell tourist friends that we are about to enter another planet. ”
We decided to depart from Perth and head north all the way back and forth for 400 kilometers that day. Someone said before that this road is very windy, but also very wonderful, creating a kind of extraordinary landscape that almost no one can imagine. Perth is the capital of Western Australia and the fourth largest city in Australia, with a mild climate and chic scenery.
We decided to go out first and take a walk on the main road St. George’s Terrace. Someone suggested that I put on a skirt, and said I couldn’t help laughing. But the day was calm, there were no clouds, and there was no sign of wind. I smiled confidently, and I wore it, whoever was afraid!
Not long after leaving the house, a gust of wind whizzed past, and the tall buildings on both sides of the street formed a huge wind tunnel. I screamed, clutching the skirt tightly. The locals laughed and said “Doctor Fremantle”. This is the first time I heard the word.
“This is the name we give to the sea breeze. But it doesn’t sound so romantic. The sea breeze is more often a sea beast.” Said Neil Bennett, director of media communications at the Western Australian Weather Bureau The windiest city in Australia. ”
They are sometimes referred to as Haifeng as “Doctor”. This wind refers to a cool sea breeze that appears on time every afternoon in the southwestern coastal areas of Western Australia in summer. It is caused by the temperature difference between land and sea. Bennett went on to explain: “The reason why it is called a doctor is because it, like a doctor, can give people a sense of healing and save people from a hot afternoon.” In fact, whether it is hot weather, tropical cyclones, or wind Whirlpool, Western Australians have long been surprised by all kinds of extreme weather. It even records the strongest winds in history: on the northern coast of Western Australia in 1996, winds reached 408 kilometers per hour. But it is these windy weather that brings unique natural wonders to Western Australia.
“Move the Dunes”
We drove north along the coast, passed the wind power plant, and reached the small fishing village of Lancelin. The village has a resident population of only 700, but every year it hosts one of the world’s most famous water sports championships, the Lancelin Ocean Race. Hundreds of thousands of professional windsurfers, kitesurfers and marine explorers gather in the village to bring a new vitality and vitality here.
Bennett told us: “People will travel to Lancelin from all over the world, because the wind here is very stable.” As soon as I entered the village, I realized that Bennett was absolutely right. The trees were growing at a 45-degree angle, with squatting low houses next to them. Everything was in a static motion, as if preparing to escape, but was frozen as soon as it started screaming. The trees in the park are trimmed neatly, and the children are playing skateboards and cycling around. The picnic area was tightly fenced, leaving only one opening in the east. The surrounding white sand dunes seem a bit uncoordinated. The highest is three stories high, and there are many sand dunes in the inland areas a few kilometers away from the coastline.
“They are called ‘moving dunes because they move northwards towards the summit at about 1200 meters per year. There are also many signs on the road to warn drivers that sand can be damaged by windy weather,” Vysorlen said. Blowing inland will reduce visibility. ”
Adventurous tourists are rushing to these huge sand dunes, enjoying a variety of sports-beach cross-country, quad bikes, sand skating, etc., and then heading to the Pinnacles Desert to visit. But most people don’t know that it is these sand grains that formed the tens of thousands of stone pillars 50 kilometers away by the west wind.
The Pinnacles Desert, located in Lampang National Park, is one of Australia’s most exotic landscapes. In the golden-yellow desert, dense limestone columns stand up to four meters in height. Some stone pillars are jagged, and some are mushroom-shaped. Walking between the forests of stone pillars, the glittering gold light reflected by the limestone in the strong sunlight is dizzying. Stone pillars stood side by side, without a glance at their heads, as if the entire army had turned into stones, standing on the coast and waiting to prevent invaders from coming ashore. Perhaps that year, the Aborigines watched the European explorers come here in astonishment, wondering who these people were, where they came from, and what they wanted to do.
