Go swimming, fishing, cruising, canoeing, sailing, rowing and skiing on the waters of Lake Kununurra in the East Kimberley. The Lake was formed after the completion of the Diversion Dam in Kununurra, and today harbours a variety of wildlife, with its wetland areas internationally recognised for the wonderful range of bird life they support. The waters of Lake Kununurra have also been recently re-stocked with more than 300,000 of the highly prized trophy fish - the barramundi - making it a destination for keen anglers to put their strength and endurance to the test. The 56 kilometre stretch of water from the dam wall at Lake Argyle to the Diversion Dam passes through some of the most scenic countryside in the region. So be sure to take a boat cruise and travel down Carlton Gorge with its magnificent cliffs and rock overhangs. Or enjoy magnificent waterfalls that cascade into the gorge during the wet season. You can also hire a canoe and paddle from dam to dam, camping on the riverbank overnight. Lake Kununurra fringes the township of Kununurra and extends to the Lake Argyle dam wall about a 40 minute drive from town.

Roebuck Bay is one of Broome’s most beautiful natural attractions. The changing colours in the ebb and flow of Roebuck Bay are amazing. At low tide, the milky turquoise waters retreat to expose a horizon of mud flats. During the cooler months you can witness the Staircase to the Moon. This spectacular natural phenomenon is created the rising of a full moon reflecting off the tidal flats of Roebuck Bay. The bay is also home to some incredible wildlife including hundreds of birds, making it popular for bird watching. Roebuck Bay was named after explorer William Dampier’s vessel by the crew of the HMS Beagle who visited the bay in 1840. Roebuck Bay surrounds the town of Broome and is easily accessible by car, or tour. Broome is a two and a half hour flight from Perth.

There are only two horizontal waterfalls on Earth and you can look wide-eyed and open-mouthed upon both of them at Talbot Bay in the Buccaneer Archipelago of Australia's North West. The white waters are thrilling to ride by boat and awe-inspiring to view from the air. Join a scenic flight or sea safari to the Horizontal Waterfalls from Kooljaman in Cape Leveque, Broome or Derby to see and experience it for yourself. So, what makes the water fall sideways? These incredible natural wonders are the work of some of the largest tidal movements in the world. As the tide ebbs and flows, a huge volume of water is forced through two narrow cliff passages, creating a variation in ocean level of up to four metres and a unique waterfall effect. You'll need to base yourself in the Kimberley towns of Broome or Derby, both of which offer a good range of accommodation options and a choice of sedate or adrenalin-fuelled Horizontal Waterfalls tours.

Reddell Beach is a favourite beach amongst the Broome locals, with the stark contrasts of red pindan bordering the white sandy beach. Examine the unusual rock formations with their intricate erosion patterns along the pristine stretch of beach. The calm refreshing waters are ideal for swimming or paddling with the children, and the lack of crowds makes this well kept secret spot an idyllic location. Enjoy a picnic lunch or just laze about on the beach and soak up the sun. If you time your visit at high tide, you may be fortunate to witness a spectacular phenomenon when the ocean meets the pindan cliffs and the ochre colour bleeds into the normally crystal blue waters. Reddell Beach was named after Captain Reddell who was murdered by his crew onboard the brig Ethel shortly after leaving Broome on one of many trips to New Zealand transporting supplies for the pearling luggers. Reddell Beach is less than 10 minutes drive from Broome and two minutes drive to Gantheume Point where you can witness 120 million year old dinosaur footprints on the reef. Broome is a two and a half hour flight north of Perth.
