Overview
More
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.

I think that it's best to contact the company. They deal with the tides. Another possible source of information is the Broome Visitor Centre. You could contact them & they would probably be able to advise. Good luck!

You are best to speak to the company running the tours re the medical issues you have. I am just a traveller and don't have back issues so can't recall if it would be a problem or not for you.
