Immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the waters at Dalmanyi (Bell Gorge).
Sun-bleached rocks wind through a bush landscape which leads you to the first water filled pool. The backdrop of an amber hued hill reveals a dreamy, reflective photo opportunity.
Find a flat stone surface opposite, nestled in the overhanging, folded rocks; pause in the shade and take in the dramatic scenery of the Kimberley’s Wunaamin Miliwundi Ranges.
Walk further still and the steep and sometimes challenging climb to the waterfall at Bell Gorge is easily forgotten when you swim and re-energise beneath the fall’s refreshing cascade.
