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.

Did the full day flight from Broome, over the horizontal falls and up to cape Leveque where we stopped for a wonderful lunch and a swim in the warm waters. Food was beautiful and our tour guide/pilot Nick was very knowledgeable of the area.

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!

You are best to speak to the company running the tours re the medical issues you have. I am just a traveller and don't have back issues so can't recall if it would be a problem or not for you.

I would check the tide movement to see when you would be there.
