Is there any such thing as a horizontal waterfall? Described by Sir David Attenborough as “Australia’s most unusual natural wonder” I can confirm the Horizontal Falls exist and are a definite wonder after seeing them with my own eyes!
Our Ultimate Horizontal Falls Adventure began with our flight from Derby and continued as we landed on the water and disembarked onto a pontoon in Talbot Bay, far north Western Australia, to view this amazing natural phenomenon found nowhere else in the world.
No sooner had we arrived at the pontoon Dave and I were ushered to a helicopter for the first flight within our group. There were only 3 passengers per flight so we were also lucky to share this experience together as many others travelling together were split up to make up the 3rd passenger.
We were soon back on the pontoon with the other 10 guests and waiting to be ferried to our houseboat to settle into our accommodation for the next 24 hours.
It’s about 11.30am, our trip is about 1 1/2 hours old and already we have had a plane trip in a 14 seater seaplane, a 20 minute helicopter flight and we are now about to go aboard a fast boat called Full Throttle, powered by 900 horsepower, which will take us to the houseboat – very quickly!
What a way to start the day! It really is at Full Throttle!
