A unique experience which demonstrates the awesome power of the Kimberley tides.

Located in the Buccaneer Archipelago this unique waterfall is not accessible directly by vehicle/road. You can see it with half day, full day, overnight stays, helicopter flights or small plane tours. We do have some options that include a 4WD journey that meets the seaplane at Cygnet Bay (these are the Fly/Drive or Drive/Fly tours).

Get up close with an multi day, extended Kimberley cruise that includes a visit to Talbot Bay, or visit by seaplane and land at the Horizontal Falls floating pontoon base to enjoy a thrilling boat ride close to the rushing water torrents. Guests can also choose to get close to the Horizontal Falls with a brand new one-day cruise departing Broome or Cygnet Bay.

Choose from scenic flight only options, or full day tours which include on the ground experiences on the Dampier Peninsula.


NEAP TIDES

On neap tide dates, there are alternative options to still see the falls and you can flyover the Horizontal Falls with a scenic flight from Broome, Cygnet Bay or Derby all year round.
