And there they are. The three sisters.

According to one Aboriginal legend, the pillars were once three beautiful sisters named Meehni, Wimlah, and Gunnedoo who were turned to stone by a powerful tribal elder. The women had fallen in love with three brothers from another tribe, but were forbidden to marry under tribal law. The brothers decided to capture the three sisters, causing a major battle, and the elder turned the women to stone to protect them. He had intended to reverse the spell when the battle was over, but was killed himself. As only he could reverse the spell, the sisters remain in their magnificent rock state as an eternal reminder of this battle.

One minute we’re over there, and the next we’re
over here looking up at one of the three sisters…
