Not far from Kununurra are some of the most spectacular and accessible waterfalls and permanent springs that flow all year round. We'll take you to the amazing pools of Middle Spring and Black Rocks, and 4WD through rocky ranges to the more isolated Spring Creek waterfall with its pristine waters and multiple tiers. Visit some of the most magestic boabs around and then pop down to the Lower Ord River to spot for crocs and enjoy a cacophony of bird calls.
Pick-up from your accommodation or meeting point before tour commences at 7:00am. We leave Kununurra via the Victoria Highway, crossing the Ord and Dunham Rivers with a quick detour to see an iconic Boab and the Diversion Dam viewing platform.
Along Parry's Creek Road we'll stop off at the impressive waterfalls and springs starting with Valentine Springs. We then lock in 4WD to cross creeks into Middle Spring where you can have a dip in the lower pool or climb up to the next tier for some amazing Ord Valley views. Travelling along the short 4WD track that links the two waterfalls, you’ll see Black Rock Falls a location used in the ‘Mystery Road’ ABC mini-series.
Later in the Dry Season there may not be as much water around, but further on at Spring Creek no one is ever disappointed. The rough 4WD track is well worth the 45 minutes of bouncing around. On arrival you can wallow in the lower pool under the waterfall, or go for a walk to the upper pools (depending on physical fitness and agility) the views back down the valley are truely breathtaking.
After a refreshment break, we visit some majestic boab trees and then cruise down into the Ord River bed, where you might be lucky enough to spot a croc and see a white-breasted sea eagle or osprey swooping for small fish in the shallows.
As we make our way back to Kununurra we'll drive over the Ord on the 540m long Ivanhoe Crossing where you'll see the pelicans catching more than the anglers, before dropping you off at your accommodation or meeting point.
