The horizontal waterfall can be "reversed 2 times a day" unique in the world

Talbot Bay, located on the Kimberleys Coast, Western Australia is home to a very unique natural phenomenon.

The majestic spectacle of Horizon Waterfall when viewed from above.

Located deep in the bay are two horizontal waterfalls, named horizon Waterfall. Horizon Waterfall is formed when water flows going through a small gap between the mountains in the McLarty Range.

When the tide rises and falls, the amount of water flowing into the gap is greater than the amount flowing through, creating great water pressure. From there, the flowing-out water will roll the waves, blow white foam, creating a waterfall effect.

Seen from above, in the middle of the sea of bright turquoise water, a small stream of water spews white foam like a waterfall flowing horizontally.

There are two openings located on two parallel mountains about 300 m apart. The first opening, facing the sea, is about 20 m wide. The second opening is also the most spectacular of only about 10 m wide. Water flowing through these two gaps creates two horizontal waterfalls only in the world.

Visitors can take a boat ride through the falls during low tide.

In addition to being horizontal, the falls are "reversible", according to the Western Australia Commission on Biodiversity and Scenic Conservation. The direction of the falls will change in the direction of the tide. Thus, the waterfall will "alternate" about twice a day.

The phenomenon of the horizontal waterfall is described by British broadcaster and naturalist David Attenborough as "one of the greatest natural wonders of the world".

In this area, there are times when the tides rise up to 10 m in about six hours. Visitors can take a boat ride through Horizon Waterfall during low tide.

To see the two waterfalls more clearly, visitors can choose to go on an air cruise by Broome or Derby.
