Horizontal Waterfalls tours

One of the greatest wonders of the natural world” - David Attenborough

The Horizontal Waterfalls is one of the ‘must see’ destinations in the the Kimberley and are a fast-moving tidal flow through two narrow, closely aligned gorges of the McLarty Range, located in Talbot Bay. The direction of the flow reverses with each change of tide. As tides in the Kimberley can reach 11 metres, a peak tide gives rise to a significant difference in the sea level on either side of each gorge.

You can only visit the Horizontal Waterfalls by seaplane or a scenic flight flyover, or on a Kimberley cruise.  There is no road access.

From 22 March 2018, there is a Marine Park Fee payable by all visitors to the Horizontal Waterfalls.   The Marine Park Fee does not apply to travellers on scenic flights over the Horizontal Waterfalls which do not land at the Horizontal Waterfalls.
