Bell Gorge Tours

Bell Gorge
Usually places in the middle of the desert are quiet, dry, and remote. In the case of Australia’s Bell Gorge, however, crowds of people flock to the Kimberley to witness a gorgeous, multi-tiered waterfall go splashing down into a pool. Perfectly placed amidst amber-hued sandstone, the Bell Gorge waterfall is fed by rains that fall in the Kimberley’s wet season, and offers a picturesque place to cool off and go for for a swim when it’s dry.

Take a moment to sprawl on the rocks surrounding the crystal cascade, and close your eyes as you soak up the sun and enjoy the rush of the falls. When you’ve worked up a sweat from sun tanning or hiking, a large, refreshing pool of fresh water sits right at the base of the falls—which when viewed against the rugged, dry landscape are an unforgettable sight. It’s little wonder why Bell Gorge is immensely popular with photographers, who camp at nearby Silent Grove Campground, sleeping out under the stars, before waking up early to hike through the gorge and enjoy the spectacular show.

Insider's Tip: If the crowds at Bell Gorge are simply too intense, follow the river away from the waterfall and you’ll have the gorge to yourself.

Practical Info

The turnoff for Bell Gorge is along the Gibb River Road, and then 18 miles down Silent Grove Road. The area can become very crowded with visitors, so early morning and late in the day are best for avoiding the crowds.

Multi-day tours of the Kimberley region make it easy to visit the Bell Gorge area, which requires 4WD.  The best season for visiting is from May-September, and the Gorge is a 3-hour drive from Darby. When hiking to the falls, be sure to bring hiking shoes and plenty of water.
