Nicole Kidman's Baby Magic

Be careful of swimming in Kununurra's waterfalls--you might accidentally find yourself with child! Well, at least that was Nicole Kidman's happy predicament while filming Baz Luhrmann's newest flick in Australia last year. Check out the awesome trailer here.

Kidman is convinced that it was the Kimberley waterfalls in northwestern Australian that made her and six other women working on the film pregnant. Is it an accident that Kununurra means "Big Water" in the Aboriginal language? No reports of male pregnancies have surfaced, so fellas, it's safe to swim.

Beyond the magical fertility waters of Kununurra, the Kimberley region also has one of Australia's 17 World Heritage Sites: Purnululu National Park, otherwise known as the Bungle Bungle Range, for its famous red sandstone domes. Their fertility powers have not yet been confirmed.

I will be staying away from Kununurra's waterfalls for the next 6 months then!!

I smell a money maker for CN Traveler! You can advertise adventure tours for the barren! I can see it now, "Stalk Aboriginals, and conceive a child", all for the low price of 10K!!!

Not sure how the Aboriginal people would feel about that idea.

I want to know what's in those waters!
..., maybe I don't!
