Broome has it all, it is one of the most scenic and stunning areas of our country, which is a land not short on scenic and stunning! None the less, Broome is right up there. There is one attraction in Broome that can be found nowhere else in the world, a site that alone makes the trip worthwhile: the horizontal falls. Find some Broome accommodation and come and experience Broome’s major attraction, the horizontal falls. This is a real bucket list attraction so make time to come and see this incredible attraction. The horizontal falls are formed by two small gaps in parallel islands along the Broome coastline. They are created when the big tides force the water through the narrow gaps between islands, forcing huge amounts of water through a narrow gap. It really is breathtaking to see nature’s force at work. The noise and the fury of the millions of litres of water pouring through the gap is really something to behold. The falls are caused by huge tides that rise with such a speed that massive volumes of water are trapped behind the rock walls. The water is released when the tide turns, causing the ‘waterfall’ effect. The towering walls on either side of the gaps go down 46 metres below the surface of the water. The smaller of the two gaps is about 7 metres wide while the larger one is about 20 metres wide. The wide gap has up to 1,000,000 litres moving through every second. The horizontal falls can be experienced in a number of different ways. For those who are of the observing from a distance kind you can watch from a boat. However, you can get a much closer view by actually travelling through the falls on a boat, something that is not for the faint of heart but is definitely worth the rush. Step aboard a powerful boat and surge through the falls as the tides are throwing you about, this is a white water ride like you have never had before in your life. If you want to take in the falls from a more sedate and all encompassing viewpoint you can fly above them. There are seaplanes that will take you from Kimberly out to see this natural wonder. This allows you to see them in their full glory without getting wet. It also affords you a view of the Broome coastline in all of its splendour. Come to Broome and witness the might and majesty of the horizontal falls. It really is worth the trip, you will be amazed and you will be humbled at the power of nature.
