There are only two waterfalls in the world that run horizontally and both of them are at Talbot Bay. Described by David Attenborough as 'one of the greatest natural wonders of the world', the Horizontal Falls provide a perfect demonstration of the awesome power of the Kimberley's huge ten metre tides.

One of the wonders of the Kimberley coast, Montgomery Reef is a spectacle to behold as the entire reef appears to rise from the ocean on a falling tide. With tidal differences of over 10m over a single spring tide cycle, nearly 5m of reef gradually emerges from the ocean, as water cascades down numerous channels. Photo: Garry Norris
Probably one of the most photographed Kimberley icons, a beautiful terraced waterfall on the Prince Regent River. Climb above the falls for an unforgettable swim in a massive crystal clear pool. Be rewarded with a breathtaking view over the magnificent Prince Regent River in the distance. Photo by: Lauren Bath
Raft Point, Foam Passage & Steep Island
A steep, 10 minute climb from the rocky beach takes you to the most amazing Aboriginal rock art site, with figures painted on the walls and ceiling of a rock overhang. Beautiful views down over Foam Passage to Steep Island. The area is a photographer's paradise. Photo: Gary Norris
The Mitchell Falls are a series of three sheer falls with a combined height of 80 metres. As the river falls over the edge of the Mitchell Plateau it forms the second highest falls in Western Australia. Reached by helicopter, they are most early in the season.
Crocodile Creek in Yampi Sound is a little paradise tucked away behind the sandstone walls. With the top pool cascading into the lower pool and then onto the creek below, it's a delightful place for a swim or exploration above the falls. Photo: Nicole Kenny
King George Falls
Probably the Kimberley's most spectacular waterfall and West Australia's highest. These towering twin waterfalls are 80 metres high. Cruise captains nose the bow of the boats to within metres of the rock face, right up under the spray. Some cruises offer helicopter flights over the falls and it is also possible to climb up the escarpment to the plateau.
Prince Frederick Harbour, Hunter River & Mt Trafalgar
A stunning river system lined with dense mangrove forests and surrounded by rainforest encrusted mountains. The Hunter is reputed to have the greatest population of salt water crocodiles of any Kimberley river. The river has two spectacular waterfalls, the Hunter Falls and Donkin Falls, both of which drop 90 metres (295 ft). Also a large and unique rock formation can be found at the mouth of the river.
