Information

High tidal flow creates the unique horizontal waterfall in Talbot Bay. The fast-moving tidal current squeezes through two narrow gorges, pushing the water into rapid like formations which rush through the twin gaps at an astonishing rate, producing waterfalls turned on their side. The powerful tides in the Kimberley can reach more than 10 metres and the direction of the flow reverses ensuring the water flows two different ways each day.

Nicknamed 'the Horries' and known as Garaanngaddim to the Aboriginal community, the Horizontal Falls are located in the Lang-garram / Horizontal Falls Marine Park.

This unique waterfall is not accessible by vehicle. You can view the Horizontal Falls from the air with a scenic flight from Broome or Derby all year round. Get up close with an extended cruise or visit by float plane and land at the Horizontal Falls and hold on tight as you take a thrilling boat ride through the rushing water torrents.
