Galvans Gorge

Natural Attractions

Galvans Gorge is the most accessible gorge along the legendary Gibb River Road in the Kimberley and an ideal rest stop for a refreshing dip. It’s a short bushwalk, passing a tranquil waterlily filled waterway, to reach the inviting plunge pool framed by granite outcrops and fed by a waterfall.

The gorge lies just 1 kilometre off the Gibb River Road – a 660 kilometre four wheel drive trail originally built for droving cattle between Wyndham and Derby. The road is only accessible in the dry season, between May and October, and this picturesque rest stop is conveniently located between the overnight stops at Mount Hart Homestead and Manning Gorge.

It’s been a popular place to visit for many thousands of years, as you’ll discover if you look closely at the rock walls beside the main pool where ancient Wandjina rock art can be found.

Sit on the rocks directly beneath the falls and enjoy an invigorating back massage before hitting the trail to reach your next destination.
