The Horizontal Falls 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 10 metres, a peak tide gives rise to a significant difference in the sea level on either side of each gorge. Travelling by land, air and sea - Horizontal Falls offers full and half day tours to experience this natural phenomenon.

This is a great trip! I did the half-day early morning tour out of Broome and it was fabulous. Spectacular views from the seaplane and although I had thought it would be bumpy, it was smoother during takeoff, flight, and landing than any land-based flight I have taken. The pilot and staff were professional and pleasant. This group seems very... More

Wow what a great day. A long day but certainly worth it, great people, lots of information, fantastic food and that boat trip through the falls was amazing. Seems expensive but if you only do one thi g while in the Kimberley - this is it. Well done.

We stayed over night at the horizontal falls and just loved it !!! We were picked up from our caravan park in Derby at 2:15 pm and taken to the Derby Airport where we boarded a seaplane. We flew out to Talbot Bay and landed on the water. We were shown our rooms for the night and then we went... More

This is a really professional operation and although the day excursion is not cheap it is a really packed day. All the staff are young, friendly and enthusiastic. Start the day with a sea plane flight to the falls, transfer to the speed boats with their 900 hp motors as you witness the horizontal falls up close, breakfast, see sharks... More

I know it is expensive but the 12 hour day trip from Broome was worth every cent. We started with a 5.20 am pickup and then flew out of Broome at 6.00 am for a one hour flight to Talbot Bay where we landed on the water. Cup of coffee and watched shark feeding - you could swim alongside but... More

A friend and I took the morning flight from Derby. Loved flying over the mud flats and then landing in Talbot Bay. We had a wonderful boat ride and then two wonderful runs through the Falls. Back and forward many times and made even better by the squeals of delight from a young passenger! Lunch was delicious, staff young and... More

My wife and I absolutely adored this day. Every staff member was great. The organisation fantastic. The whole experience was just the best. We would go back, and would love to do a sleepover or even a 4 day trip. Find the money somewhere and do this.
