Where is it? In the state’s far north, on the western side of the Kimberley, about 15 hours’ drive west of Kununurra
Mitchell Plateau is accessible by car during the dry season via an unsealed 4WD track off the Gibb River Road, along Kulumburu Road. Continue along it, turning at the Mitchell Plateau Track and drive on to the Mitchell Falls campsite. It is a 3km walk from the campground to the falls, passing a variety of habitats, waterholes and Aboriginal rock art. To get another perspective of the Mitchell Falls, flight tours of the plateau are available with operators such as Bush Flight and Slingair Heliwork.
