Kimberley Waterfalls

Waterfalls

Waterfalls in the Kimberley and Pilbara

 

A waterfall moment in one of the last true wilderness areas on Earth is a moment in time you’ll remember for life - the thrill of riding the white waters of the world’s only two Horizontal Falls, or the tranquility of nature’s watery cascades surrounded by dramatic gorges million of years in the making.

 

The replenishing seasonal rains send waterfalls thundering and cascading throughout the Kimberley and Pilbara, creating inviting plunge pools and enchanting oases of plant and animal life. Record rainfalls during the 2017 wet season means there’s never been a better time to explore the waterfalls and gorges of the North West and to help you choose, here are some of our favourites.
