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.

A bit on the pricey side but you will definitely enjoy the aerial scenery, boat ride, and shark feeding that accompany this excursion.

I was initially reluctant to succumb to pressure from my wife to go on this adventure, due to the cost, but it was a great experience and I am glad I went. My wife was right! (Not normally the case!) The crews of both the planes and the jet boat were young, switched on pros and the level of care... More

Great adventure. Great experience. The seaplane was comfortable, pilot great and the scenery to and from the Horizontal Falls was superb. The breakfast was scrumptious with all you can eat bacon and eggs, coffee and juice etc. The sharks were cute but we didn't swim them. The boat ride was excellent through the rapids of the change of tides and... More

Five members of our family went on this amazing adventure and loved every second of it. They were collected from our accommodation in Broome at 5.15am and were taken by road to Cape Leveque where the views were spectacular. They saw the shell church and the Aboriginal community at Beagle Bay and were then taken to Koollaman for breakfast. After... More

We took the afternoon half day trip to the Horizontal Falls from Broome. There was not a moment when we did not thoroughly enjoy a fabulous trip. The flight up to the horizontal falls was something to behold, especially landing on the water next to the house boats. Our pilot was highly professional and put safety first at all times.... More

This was the best experience EVER! Pricey but worth every cent. The views are spectacular and the ride on the water plane is a lot of fun. I went with the company that lands close to the falls and then puts you on a jet boat to take you right through the falls. Breakfast included and if you let them... More
