The Kimberley is considered one of Earth's greatest natural and cultural treasures. The region is rated alongside the Arctic and Antarctic as one of the planet's last great marine wildernesses. It represents a vast, magnificent and relatively unexplored marine realm that has escaped human exploitation for the last 2.5 million years.
Described by Sir David Attenborough as 'one of the greatest natural wonders of the world', the Horizontal Waterfalls in Talbot Bay are the only waterfalls where water cascades horizontally. Caused by intense tidal currents moving huge volumes of water through confined gaps where the mainland King Leopold Ranges meet the sea, the Horizontal Waterfalls are 50 nautical miles by air or 70 nautical miles by boat from Cygnet Bay.
