Tahitian Chestnut - scene from Lord Of The Rings

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The Dales were the first location where Europeans set foot on Christmas Island in 1688, during the expedition of William Dampier. The site comprises a system of seven watercourses within the Christmas Island National Park, including permanent and perennial streams, permanent springs, the Hugh's Dale waterfall, and most of the surface water on the island. The site is set within tropical rainforest and adjoins the coast. The streams originate from groundwater seepages and flow into the ocean having, over time, worn gullies into the coastal cliffs.
