HORIZONTAL FALLS, THE KIMBERLEY
The vast landscape of the Kimberley in Australia’s northwest wilderness is home to the unique Horizontal Falls. This is a tidal phenomenon formed by a gap in the McLarty Ranges at Talbot Bay, part of the Buccaneer Archipelago. Here sea water left behind by receding tides squeezes through a gap in the ranges, sometimes forming a waterfall up to 4m high. In March–April the king tides generate the most spectacular changes in water level; this is also a good time to catch the last of the wading birds arriving from Siberia and turtle nesting season (November–March).
