Rock Formation, Queensland

On our way to Port Douglas after Cairns we came across these rocks on a beach.  Someone started making formations then others joined in.  The rocks are well balanced and no one touches them people just make new ones.
If a storm comes they are knocked over and are mysteriously rebuilt.
No one seems to know when the first formation was built.

  5. How curious. I imagine it wouldn't take too much of a storm to knock them down.

  15. how wonderful this rock formation is !!!

    they look so interesting and fascinating to eyes! I wonder how they take such amazing shape after blowing by waves.
    beaches are soul refreshing place but with such art become more special.

    1. Amazing how high some of those rocks are - it's amazing how they stay on top of each other even when the wind blows.

  23. We came across an area similar to that high in the Norwegian mountains where people had done a similar thing - they look artistic, rather like natures own sculptures.

  25. It's amazing how these things get started and then assume a life of their own.
