West of Kununurra on the road to Wyndham the waterfalls go 'wild' in the Wet. As soon as they're flowing, we run morning and/or afternoon tours to check out The Grotto, Moochalabra Overflow and/or Three Mile Valley for a dip.
Morning tour: 7am-12pm Afternoon tour: 1pm-6pm
Pick-up from your accommodation or meeting point before tour commences and leave Kununurra via the Ord River Diversion Dam and the Dunham River Bridge for great views of the Wet Season flood waters. We'll then head westward along the Victoria Highway toward Wyndham calling into a lookout with spectacular views from the northern side of the Cockburn Ranges. One of the highlights of an East Kimberley Wet season is The Grotto in full flood. We’ll stop for some pics and a dip within its unique rock walls and cooling waters. Turning off the highway we’ll head across the flooded marshland along the King River Road to catch cool spray of the Moochalabra Overflow and then stop for some refreshments by the King River, where you may lucky enough to spot a croc cruising with the tide or some Brolga dancing alongside. Depending on road conditions, we could pop up to the top of the dam and then along to another crossing of the King*. The afternoon tour option includes Wyndham’s Three Mile Valley* and Five Rivers Lookout for sunset views across the Gulf and flooded mudflats. On the way back to Kununurra on the morning tour, we’ll point out some other ‘cool’ sites, including the flagstone construction of the Old Halls Creek Road, and stop in at Molly Springs* for a last dip or ‘click’ before dropping you off at your accommodation or meeting point.
* Visiting some sights and activities will depend on rainfall, waterfall activity and time of day.
