More aerial images from the Kimberley, this one also from last year. This is what Mitchell falls, up on the Mitchell Plateau usually looks like in the dry season. Its a spectacular waterfall that cascades over 4 tiers before dumping into the Mitchell River and flowing out to sea on the North Kimberley coast.
In this shot above and at left you can see the tiers of each shelf as the water flows over the edge. Compare that to this shot by Dave Bettini, shot from a helicopter recently, after one of the biggest wet seasons ever to hit the Kimberley… It’s the same location, but there is so much water you can’t see the tiers on the falls at all, i can only imagine the noise it must be making!
I’ll be heading up to Mitchell falls straight after the Bungles Tour concludes at the end of May, i can only hope there is still so much water.
