The horizontal waterfalls is a natural phenomenon Australia

They say the difference between man and waterfall is that the extent of his greatness is not determined by the height of its fall. However, on earth many natural wonders: you can find not only traditional waterfalls, which fall to earth from a dizzying height, but also horizontal. Such natural phenomena are in Australia. Despite the fact that their height is only about 5 meters, for its beauty they are not inferior to the most beautiful waterfalls in the world.

The horizontal waterfalls are located in the Australian Talbot Bay. There are two mountain ranges at a distance of approximately 300 m from each other, each of which has a narrow cleft (width of one of them is about 20 m, the second – 10 m). During high tides, a huge mass of water from the Bay rushes through the cleft. Due to the difference in water level under the strong pressure formed by the natural phenomenon of the horizontal waterfalls.

Despite the fact that the Australian horizontal waterfalls are clearly not a competition to such giants as Niagara falls or Victoria falls, David Attenborough, one of the most famous naturalists in the world, having studied this natural phenomenon, called it "one of the greatest natural wonders in the world."
