Seeing the deep down Blyde River ('river of joy') and the Treur River ('river of sorrow') meeting down-under, its naturally flowing has created the most attractive composition in the earth, well-known as the 'Bourke's Luck Potholes'. Within thousands of years, surreal cylindrical rock sculptures created by cutting waters have transformed a series of dark waterholes which are contrasting artfully with the streaked whitey and yellowish lichen washed rock creations. As the travelers drive by road to the Treur River we will find more viewing spots like the Wonder View, God's Window and the Pinnacle.
