Overview
More
The Horizontal Falls are a fast-moving tidal flow through two narrow, closely aligned gorges of the McLarty Range, located in Talbot Bay. The direction of the flow reverses with each change of tide. As tides in the Kimberley can reach 10 metres, a peak tide gives rise to a significant difference in the sea level on either side of each gorge. Travelling by land, air and sea - Horizontal Falls offers full and half day tours to experience this natural phenomenon.

We had a fantastic day trip to Horizontal Falls utilising multiple forms of transport and taking o. The local culture. All staff were very friendly but a big shout to our pilot Emma and fast boat captains.

Booked the 24hr trip then the rest of our holiday around this. It was number one on my bucket list and did not disappoint. Great staff and accommodation. It is an absolutely beautiful place and the tidal waterfall is spectacular.

I think that it's best to contact the company. They deal with the tides. Another possible source of information is the Broome Visitor Centre. You could contact them & they would probably be able to advise. Good luck!
