King George (Oomari) Falls

Welcome to Sea Country. Usually only seen from the water or air, visiting the spectacular King George Falls by road is a key highlight on our Oombi Track and Northern Balanggarra Country tours. The King George (Oomari) River cascades a jaw-dropping 40 metres over a twin waterfall before flowing out as tidal waters to Kalama Bay and the Timor Sea. After driving the newly hewn track to the river from ‘Jockey Wheel Creek’, we walk to the rocky edges of the river and emerge just upstream of the falls. As you near the falls the sweep of the river below comes into view, flanked by towering rock escarpments – a breathtaking scene that will alter your whole perspective on the Kimberley.


On the King George (Oomari) River we visit important cultural sites, including some of the Kimberley’s most significant ancient rock art. Learn from Ronnie and Colin about the archaic Gwion Gwion figures, and how they’ve been carbon dated from fossilised wasps nests. And the iconic but mysterious Wandjina, unique to the Kimberley region.

Here you may camp on the sandy banks of the river near python pool, a pandanus lined oasis shaped like a python’s head where the river widens, and then narrows again on its journey north to the sea.


On Oombi track you will visit Oombulgurri, the former Anglican mission and now abandoned community where Colin was raised. A grand avenue of lofty boab trees, a handful of houses overgrown with tropical vines, a disused school and nurses quarters are poignant reminders of the community that once lived here.
