EXPERIENCE THE NATURAL WONDER OF THE HORIZONTAL FALLS
What are the Horizontal falls?
Located deep within Talbot Bay in the Buccaneer Archipelago are the Horizontal falls, consisting of two gorges in the McLarty Range that stand around 300 meters apart. There are two Seaward gaps, one 20 metres wide and the second 10 metres wide, and as the tide buffers them it builds up quicker than it can flow through, causing the “horizontal falls”, a phenomenon that got its name name from the roaring water running horizontally through this gap.
What are the best ways to experience the Horizontal falls?
Have you ever wanted to ride through a waterfall on speedboat? Well how about doing so on one of the greatest natural wonders of the world! With our horizontal falls tours, you can not only experience this natural phenomena up close, but you can actually ride across the falls on a speed and adrenaline fuelled boat ride. In the midst of the action take a moment and realise what beautiful natural wonder your witnessing as there truly is nothing else like them on the planet.
After the adrenaline has worn off, unwind with a swim in our safe zone. If being on the water doesn’t appeal to you but you still want to experience the majesty of the falls, an excellent alternative is to view the falls by air in a helicopter or seaplane, with regular trips running for this unique experience.
What else can I see as well as the falls themselves?
This is of course the grand finale; however, this is not the whole tour and there is far more to this stunning region than just the falls. You can choose to depart from Broome or Derby and opt for a half, full day or overnight tour. The tours allow you to travel by land, sea and air, and visit some of the more unknown areas of the Kimberleys. The tours begin by boarding a 4WD vehicle and heading into the depths of the wilderness within the Kimberley. Your first stop will be a famous pearl shell church at Beagle Bay, where you can stretch your legs and admire this unique location. Then, depending on your preference, you can opt to visit either Cape Leveque or Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm for a bite to eat and a tour of the area.
Alternatively, if you would prefer something a bit more luxurious, you can hope aboard a luxury seaplane for a scenic flight overlooking the entire beautiful coastline. Watch as the scenery unravels and allow the realisation to set in that you are in a natural oasis. Enjoy the descent as you glide down to the water and enjoy an adrenaline fuelled landing before letting your taste buds take over whilst you enjoy a delicious BBQ on a luxury houseboat.
