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 have lived in the Pilbara for seven years and doing the Horizontal Falls was on our 'must see' list. Finally we made it to the Kimberley region on our way to do the Gibb River Road and this was our first port of call. What a wonderful way to start our "Outback Adventure". We stayed overnight (the cabins are... More

A must do while in Broome. This untouched scenery is a photographic dream. Every corner better than the last. A very professional tour, group. Well worth the money, we did a full day. We were a bit scared that our 14 year old, would be terrified, of the fast boat, but he loved the experience. I was so impressed with... More

After booking this trip months in advance I was a bit hesitant about spending such a large amount of money, as my wife and I had booked the full day trip out of Broome. These fears were totally unfounded, as we have never had a more enjoyable day. The staff were very professional and helpful and the trip would be... More

Seaplane journey to and from Talbot Bay. Three trips by fast boat to the horizontal falls, boat trip around Cyclone Inlet, feeding the sharks and groper and our wonderful barramundi... More

The "must do" whilst here in Broome did not disappoint!! We didn't book until half way through our stay, hoping to be able to do the trip within a few days.....due to its popularity and us needing 4 seats we had to wait almost a week to be able to get a guernsey!!! TAKE THE ADVICE - BOOK EARLY, otherwise... More

This was an amazing day out from the moment they picked us up at our accommodation until we got home 12 hours later. The jet boat rides (yes we got 2 rides) were awesome, the seaplane trip was great, fantastic views from the air, fantastic bus trip home. Awesome breakfast on the boat, then awesome lunch at Cape Leveque then... More

Absolutely loved this trip. It has everything from the road trip to Cape Leveque and it's magnificent beaches to a very scenic flight to and over the Horizontal Falls. To cap it off, the boat ride through the falls is exhilarating. Lunch was also very nice, thoroughly recommend. Staff all very pleasant and professional.

Stunning scenery and Our pilot Ben was fantastic, we felt like we were in very capable hands. Arriving at the falls and landing on the water was fantastic. The... More

We had an awesome day, flights were unbelievable. Only way to see it all. The jet boat ride was exhilarating and very informative. The staff couldn't do enough for you to ensure that everyone had a wonderful time.
