What to Expect

Split into two vastly different seasons, Broome's infamous wet and dry seasons bring beauty incomparable to anywhere else in the world.

 

See both sides of Mitchell River National Park on a Mitchell Falls Explorer scenic flight; with different options available throughout the year.

 

Wet season itinerary 

October through to March is the almighty wet season, where the natural beauty of the region comes to life.

 

Departing Broome, fly north over King Sound, home to Australia’s largest tides and amongst the highest in the world. You'll then head over Walcott Inlet Estuary, the rarely seen Harding Range, and the impressive King Cascade on the Prince Regent River, before landing at Mitchell Plateau, home to the Wunambal, Gaambera, Kwini and Balangarra.


On arrival into Mitchell Plateau, enjoy refreshments and a comfort stop before jumping back in the plane to overfly the Mitchell Falls and then track coastal southbound past Kuri Bay, Camden Sounds, Montgomery Reef and onto the spectacular Horizontal Waterfalls.


Here, you'll witness the amazing tidal shift through the natural phenomenon the Horizontal Waterfalls in Talbot Bay.


Following on from here, track across the endless islands of the spectacular Buccaneer Archipelago including Cockatoo and Koolan Iron-ore mines before stopping at Cape Leveque.

 

Explore Kooljaman, Cape Leveque and a stop for refreshments, a swim and enough time to enjoy a walk along the beautiful beaches of red rock, white sand and turquoise waters.

 

See the spectacular bays and beaches of the Dampier Peninsula, Beagle Bay, James Price Point, Willie Creek and Broome's world-famous Cable Beach as you then track coastal southbound back to Broome, equipped with unforgettable memories.

 

Note: Landing at Mitchell Plateau is subject to suitable conditions. The Horizontal Waterfalls is a natural phenomenon which is tide dependant with variable flow.
