    It's the Giants causeway on the North-East coast of Northern Ireland. It's the result of an ancient volcanic eruption and is composed of about 40,000 hexagonal columns of basalt.

    The nearest town is Bushmills, about 3 miles to the South-West.image.jpgimage.jpg

    This is the Gagudju Crocodile Holiday Inn in the center of the Kakadu national Park in Northern Territory, Australia.

    This hotel owes its shape to the fact that Kakadu National Park is the largest in Australia and has more than 10,000 crocodiles.

    If this is correct, please open the next challenge to everyone as I will not be able to monitor a challenge.

    Thats correct. The domes of the Mitchell Park Horticultural Conservatory were the world's first conoidal domes. They cover 45,000 sq. feet and were constructed over a period of 8 years from 1959 to 1967.

    Correct, Johanna. I visited the tower in 2007, on my trip to Japan. It was the tallest free standing tower in the world when it was built.

    As per Johanna's wishes, the challenge is now opened to whoever wishes to post the next challenge.
