Hugh’s Dale Waterfall
Tne of the highlights of Christmas Island is the unusual Hugh’s Dale Waterfall. The hard water of the spring, which feeds this waterfall, has formed impressive tufa deposits. The wall of these porous rocks forms an impressive accent in the exotic rainforest of The Dales and not less impressive are the rare rimstone pools formed below the waterfall.
