Horizontal Falls

Located deep within Talbot Bay in the Buccaneer Archipelago are the Horizontal Waterfalls. Massive tidal movements create a waterfall effect as water banks up against one side of the narrow cliff passage, to be repeated again on the turning tide.

The twin gaps are part of the McLarty Ranges, which have two ridges running parallel approximately 300 metres apart. The first and most seaward gap is about 20 metres wide and the second, most spectacular, gap is about 10 metres wide.

The waterfall phenomena has been described by David Attenborough as “one of the greatest natural wonders of the world”.

Options to view the Horizontal Falls are a scenic flight, a seaplane trip where you land on the water and take a fast boat ride through the gaps, or take a multi day boat cruise.

Gibb River Road

Turning off the bitumen and going ‘over the range’ on the Gibb River Road is a truly unique Aussie outback adventure through the Kimberley’s vast untouched wilderness, ancient gorge country and epic cattle stations the size of small countries.
