Spectacular tidal currents and whirlpools, sandstone escarpments and gorges, lagoons visited by waterbirds, lush rainforest patches and waterlily-dotted pools are features of Walcott Inlet.

The inlet has huge tides of around 11m and dense mangroves supporting wildlife such as green pygmy geese, sacred ibis or estuarine crocodiles.
The Isdell, Calder and Charnley rivers flow into the inlet, carving spectacular gorges into the sandstone. There are many waterfalls, even in the dry season, decorated with fern banks, and fig trees that cling to sheer rock walls.
