I have had the most amazing opportunity to go and see the Horizontal Falls. It is a unique feature in the far north of western Australia. It is assessable only by seaplane or cruise ship/ I went out on the seaplane, an amazing adventure in itself. When we landed we hopped on a jet boat & were taken through the falls at low tide, this is the only time both falls are assessable. Horizontal Falls are named because the water rises and falls horizontally instead of vertically! The tide rises about 6 metres, you can see the tide line on the rocks in the pic, and as the tide both rises and falls the water rushes through the opening in the cliffs causing white water and whirlpools to form.

As you can see from the picture I took from the seaplane it is a beautiful, breathtaking, tranquil part of nature. I hope the image will bring you peace and a place of reflection.
