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

I have been travelling Australia for the last 8 months and I am currently in Broome. I had heard about the horizontal falls tour whilst travelling so once I was here I decided I needed to investigate further. I was lucky enough to do a afternoon half day tour last week and I can honestly say that this tour is... More

The Horizontal Falls Seaplane Adventure is a very professionally run operation and the crew are friendly and knowledgeable. The scenic flights to and from the Falls (I went from Derby) go over some truly outstanding scenery (including Buccaneer Archipelago and King Sound) - I feel the flights alone are almost worth the total cost of the tour. Landing and taking... More

I was lucky enough to travel on the first tour of the 2014 season, WOW what an experience. I had heard a lot of great things about this tour, I must admit the price did seem high but after doing the tour I can honestly say it was worth every cent and more! Landing on the water in breath taking... More

It's official I have just booked to do this tour again in June! My mum and I did this tour in May 2013 and it was the highlight of the top end. We did the full day tour, that includes a 4WD trip to Cape Leveque, Beagle Bay and one Arm Point. I can not fault this tour from the... More

I had always wanted to experience Horizontal Falls and I was lucky enough to be able to full fill that dream this year. I decided, at the recommendation of others to do the overnight trip, It was everything I had hoped for and more. From the pick up and then the sea plane ride, to be welcomed on the houseboat,...

From the morning pickup to the evening return it was first class, the flight, boat rides, food, everything. But lastly the staff were the best, their service and knowledge was among the best... More

We did the Full Day Tour with Horizontal Falls Seaplane Adventures in September. It was the perfect time to visit Broome as town had quietened down after the hustle and bustle of peak season and the weather was still perfect! Our day started early with a complimentary pick-up from our Hotel by Dusty, the friendly and informative guide. Our first... More

We have visited the Horizontal Falls on a couple of occasions, both with this same company. I can't recommend the trip highly enough, in my opinion the area is the most beautiful place in the world I have been, and best experienced both from the air and on the water level. Although it seems a little expensive at first, once... More
