2. Horizontal falls

Enjoy a scenic ride from Broome to Talbot Bay where you'll get a chance to spot a rare phenomenon known as Horizontal Waterfalls. Located in the north of the Kimberley region, a waterfall consists of powerful 11 metres long tides that squeeze between two rocks creating a magnificent sight!

The only two ways to experience this unique natural phenomenon is by seaplane or jet boat.

On the other hand, if you'd like to experience this adventure up close and pump some adrenaline through your veins, a jet boat is the only way to do so.

3. Purnululu National Park

Uncovered to the outside world only in 1983, Purnululu National park remains one of the most spectacular sights until this day. With its unique rock formations and intimate remote location, it was home to Aboriginal tribes for over a thousand years. On top of that, this park graces UNESCO World Heritage and National protection.
