The flow of this water through these gaps just can not keep up with the rate of the tide rising or falling. This in turn creates an amazing waterfall effect as the water rushes through and then down to the lower levels on the other side of the ridgelines. Not long after the process is reversed and it is repeated again in the opposite direction.It is believed that many billions of years ago there may have been only a small crack between the ridgelines that over the years became larger and larger due to erosion and made gaps of between nine and twenty three metres which created this amazing place call Horizontal Waterfalls. « less

We were picked up at our accommodation and taken to Broome airport where we boarded an eight sweater sea plane. Our route took us up the coast with absolutely breath taking views to land on a pontoon. Here we had a tasty barbarise lunch prepared by Ella after which we watched the feeding of the sharks they encourage to live... More

Did the full day tour and can't recommend it enough - totally great value for money. Such a professionally run tour, with extremely friendly staff. The seaplane trip was beautiful, scenery is just spectacular. The breakfast and lunch served were superb, and even though it was a huge day it felt relaxed and not rushed at all. The boat trip...

A wonderful experience. The seaplane flight is over some stunning scenery, the boat rides on Talbot Bay are excellent, the breakfast was superb (thank you Ella) and the associated infrastructure was of a high standard. Yes, it's expensive, but it's worth it because you can't visit this part of the world easily.

The sea plane was fantastic. Scenery was unforgettable. Personally would do the half day and skip the big foot trip back. Not to take away from the driver he... More

The trip to Horizontal Falls was absolutely outstanding in every way. We left from Derby to do the overnight stay. The plane trip and the waterfall boat rides were brilliant. I even had an early morning helicopter ride which was amazing. The only downside was that we had to bring towels, and the hotel we stayed at The Spinifex put... More

Everything about this outing was 5*! We took seaplane flight from Derby lasting about an hour and landed on water beside 2 houseboats which were our base. After a welcome drink and briefing, we climbed aboard a super-fast speed boat for our first trip through Horizontal Falls. It wasnt a perfect time to see the Falls because it was a... More
