What to see in King George River

King George River, a stunning gem nestled in Western Australia's Kimberley region, captivates with its rugged beauty. Towering cliffs, cascading waterfalls and ancient rock art adorn this remote river, offering adventurers a glimpse into untouched wilderness. Cruising its tranquil waters reveals an unforgettable journey through Kimberley's majestic landscapes.

Embarking on a scenic cruise along King George River offers a mesmerising journey through some of Kimberley's most breathtaking landscapes. As the vessel navigates the river's tranquil waters, passengers are treated to panoramic views of towering sandstone cliffs, lush rainforest and dramatic gorges carved by millennia of erosion. One of the most iconic highlights of a King George River cruise is the opportunity to witness the awe-inspiring spectacle of King George Falls. Cascading over sheer cliffs that rise hundreds of metres above the river, these twin waterfalls form one of the tallest waterfall drops in Australia. As the boat approaches, the thunderous roar of the falls fills the air and passengers can feel the mist on their faces as they marvel at the sheer power and beauty of nature's masterpiece.

King George River is not only a natural wonder but also a place of cultural significance for the Indigenous peoples of the Kimberley. Throughout the river's rugged landscapes, ancient rock art sites provide a window into the rich cultural heritage of the region's traditional custodians, the Wunambal people. Joining a guided tour led by Indigenous guides offers visitors the opportunity to explore these sacred sites and learn about their significance. Rock art galleries adorned with intricate paintings depict scenes from the Dreamtime, the spiritual beliefs and practices of the Wunambal people and the rich biodiversity of the Kimberley landscape.

King George River and its surrounding habitats support a diverse array of wildlife, making it a haven for nature lovers and wildlife enthusiasts. As the boat glides along the river, passengers have the opportunity to spot a variety of native species, including saltwater crocodiles, wallabies and freshwater turtles basking on the riverbanks. Birdwatchers are in for a treat, as King George River is home to an abundance of birdlife, including majestic raptors, colourful parrots and waterfowl. Keep an eye out for iconic species such as the Brahminy kite, white-bellied sea eagle and rainbow bee-eater, as well as migratory shorebirds that visit the region seasonally.
