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.

The 4 Night Cruise last week was SIMPLY THE BEST with great company & expert crew. Kicking back in style as a break from the usual Oz road trip getaway is what it was all about for me and Barra Shack with all the big toys gave us access to the ultimate experiences through, in, around and ABOVE the high...

I took the seaplane out of Broome on a half day tour. These guys know how to provide a day of adventure and thrills through some of the most stunning country in Australia. I know its expensive, but just sell the children to the white slave traders and climb aboard!

Very professionally run company. Everything ran like clockwork, from the pickup with our bus driver (a very entertaining and engaging young guy). The flight out to the falls was spectacular, but also a bit of a letdown. Our pilot didn’t speak for most of the 1.30hr flight. As we had been on a Mitchell Falls all day flight experience the...

Like all the other reviewers we found this trip to be a wonderful experience and recommend it to anyone. We also paid extra to do a 10 minute helicopter flight over the falls but this part of it we would not recommend. We have been on other helicopter flights around the world of the same cost and duration and this... More

This trip had been on my bucket list and didn't disappoint. Smooth flight out and landings. Nice breakfast. The ride in the jet boat was exhilarating. Quiet ride to nearby Cyclone Creek was peaceful. Our plane back was delayed because of a medical emergency so we had another ride in the jet boat. Bonus! The guide on our road trip... More

Fabulous day, very professionally run. Flight to and from Broome gave me a great opportunity to view the remote landscape. The lunch on board their boat in Talbot Bay was plentiful and tasty. The boat trip to the falls was exciting and safely conducted. Would highly recommend this tour.

This is something that we as a couple have wanted to do for some time. The experience in total was worth the wait. The sea plane trip,the arrival at the pontoon prior to the boat trip and greeting by the staff was first class. The boat trip through the falls was excellent and everyone on the boat enjoyed the experience.... More

We went on the overnight stay from Derby with our friends. It was one of the big highlights of our trip to the top of WA. The flight out on a seaplane takes you over remarkable scenery and several passes over the falls before you land. The arrival at the houseboat pontoon very organised. We stowed our gear in our...

This is a fantastic tour. Set off in a seaplane to land on the water to board the boat to see the horizontal falls up close. Fantastic! We took the option of helicopter and it was also really wonderful! The tour is very well organised from start to finish and all the staff are helpful and very friendly. I would... More
