After your complimentary hotel pick up, you will be brought to Broome Aviation’s very own departure lounge located at the Broome International Airport. Here you will be greeted by your pilot for the day and enjoy your pre-flight breakfast and tea or coffee in air-conditioned comfort. Your pilot will outline the days adventure and give a brief safety demonstration before commencing your flight.
On the way to Mount Hart Station you will see some of the most remote Kimberley wilderness such as the Wunaamin Miliwundi Ranges, formerly known as the King Leopold Ranges. Once landed, you will have a delicious morning tea and have the opportunity to stretch your legs and refresh as you discover the history about the operational station.
Traveling northbound, the mighty Mitchell Falls come into view, the spectacular series of four waterfalls which run at varied intensities. Your journey will then continue onto the Prince Regent River, The King Cascade Falls and Montgomery Reef.
The spectacular tidal movements of the Horizontal Waterfalls which are closely aligned between the gorges of the McLarty Range in Talbot Bay will appear in your sight. As the Kimberley tides can reach up to as high as 11 meters, the peak tide gives rise to a significant difference in the sea level on either side of each gorge, which creates the rushing water and illusion of the Horizontal Falls.
Your pilot will then weave through the islands of Cockatoo and Koolan which are known as the mining empires of the Kimberley. As you fly over the millions of hectares of station land, enriched in Aboriginal heritage, your pilot will share stories and the history of the area before you enter the Buccaneer Archipelago region. Ahead of you also will be the Kimbolton Ranges, an ancient coastal seabed of the region. The thousands of islands that form the Buccaneer Archipelago become distinct.
Landing in Cape Leveque, you will be surrounded by the red rock cliffs that meet the white sandy beaches that boarder the pristine blue waters. Here you will enjoy a beautiful lunch and have time to explore and enjoy a refreshing swim.
Taking to the skies again, you will fly the beautiful WA coastline, taking in the sights of Lombadina, James Price Point, Sandy Bay, Beagle Bay and Willie Creek.
Upon landing back in Broome, your tour concludes with the complimentary hotel drop off and your very own tour souvenir.
*The Horizontal Falls is a natural tidal phenomenon. We unfortunately cannot guarantee the amount or level of water flowing through the falls at any given time. We will however vary our schedule and flight path to suit optimum tidal movement as best we can.
*During the months from October to March, the tour will go via Derby as Mount Hart Station closes for the wet season.
