The Grotto is a natural pool located 28.74kms SouthEast of Wyndham, 52.91kms West of Kununurra, 145.68kms North of Warmun (Turkey Creek) and 233.78kms SouthEast of Kalumburu, in the state of Western Australia. In other words, it’s in the middle of nowhere.


The Grotto is quite a spectacular gorge seen from the top (yesterday’s up-loaded) or from the bottom. The access to the water hole is fairly easy.There is a steep path down from the top of the plateau into the gorge. Walking down carefully, you’re there in 5 minutes. Going up is more strenuous and the beating sun and heat as you climb up make you regret having left the shaded and cool pool side.

The waterfalls are usually dry from June to November. The water has become stagnant. When I first visited the place in 2011, there were birds and two very large Merten's water monitors and it was a most enchanting moment observing them. Last June a family, was making a racket in the water swimming and scaring all the wildlife.

Reflection; detail and the wonderful feeling of isolation and stillness.

Fantastic reflections, Jean-Noel, what a sublime place to relax and have a swim, and of course to see the wildlife. Carol

nice to see pictures of these remote places that I will probably never get to see. Uluru was remote for me and that has thousands of visitors

A deep blue grotto, with a beautiful reflection.
