Mitchell Falls

Mitchell River National Park lies in a remote part of the Kimberley and contains majestic waterfalls, Aboriginal rock art and sites of cultural significance to the Wunambal people.

The Mitchell River has carved spell-binding gorges and waterfalls into the blocky, layered sandstone of the Mitchell Plateau.

Waterfalls and plunge pools

The track to Mitchell Falls ends at Mertens Creek and the adjacent Mitchell Falls Camping Area. From here you can walk to Mertons Falls, Mertons Gorge and Mitchell Falls. The other main attraction in the park, Surveyors Pool, lies further north.

Fan palm forests

The plateau is one of the most scenic and biologically important areas of the State. The fan palm is a conspicuous feature of the vegetation of some parts of the plateau, an elevated laterite-capped plain. This is one of few places in WA where palms are a dominant feature.

Rainforest jewels

Patches of rainforest grow around the margins of the plateau. Open woodlands of grey box, white gum and other trees grow around the valleys and creeks, while pandanus and paperbarks fringe the watercourses. Up to 50 mammal species, 220 bird species and 86 kinds of reptiles and amphibians may occur in the area, including the saltwater crocodile.
