The King George River plunges over an ancient sandstone cliff into tidal waters, creating the truly astounding spectacle of Oomari (King George Falls) – Western Australia’s highest twin waterfalls.
The river is of high cultural significance to the Balanggarra people, for whom the falls are the male and female Wunkurr (Rainbow Serpents).
