Horizontal Falls

Talbot Bay, Western Australia, 6733

The Basics

A seaplane flight from Broome affords sweeping aerial views of the Horizontal Falls. If you’re the more adventurous type, you might opt to explore the falls on a thrilling jet boat ride—some of which are combined with a scenic cruise along the Kimberley coast, a 4WD tour of the Dampier Peninsula, or stops at nearby attractions such as Cape Leveque and Cable Beach.

Horizontal Falls Full-Day Tour from Broome 4x4 & Seaplane
Its expensive, but it was worth it. Good scenery from both above and on the water. A long trip home but that allowed for catching up on some sleep.

While the whole tour is the fabulously good one, low altitude back to Broome flight that followed north western coast of WA was probably my favourite part of the experience. Our very friendly and helpful pilot Dan took us on a low flight following the beautiful coast line on a very smooth ride. View was incredible and Dan was extremely helpful in providing us with very detailed both general and some historical information of the area, places and islands we flew above, thank you Dan.

Horizontal Falls A Natural Phenomenon

The Horizontal Falls are created by the passage of the ocean through narrow gaps in the sea cliffs of Talbot Bay. Because the tides there are massive—reaching upward of 33 feet (10 meters)—the volume of water is too much to squeeze through the openings. So, the water stacks up along the walls, awaiting a path through the rocks, then bursts through—creating a waterfall that shoots horizontally through the bay.
