The Mitchell Plateau is home to some of the most awe-inspiring scenery in the region, including towering waterfalls, rugged cliffs, and river crossings.

To reach the Mitchell Plateau, visitors will need to pass through Drysdale River Station, a popular stopover on the Gibb River Road. The station offers a variety of facilities, including camping and accommodation options, fuel, and supplies. However, one crucial aspect to keep in mind is the river crossing at King Edward River Crossing. This crossing can be hazardous, especially during the wet season, and it is crucial to exercise caution when attempting to cross. It is highly recommended to check local conditions and water levels before trying to cross the river, and to only do so in a high-clearance four-wheel-drive vehicle.

One of the highlights of the Mitchell Plateau is undoubtedly the iconic Mitchell Falls. These stunning waterfalls are the result of thousands of years of erosion and are a must-see destination for anyone visiting the region.

Another must-see destination on the Mitchell Plateau is the nearby Wandjina and Bradshaw rock art sites. These ancient Aboriginal rock art sites provide insight into the rich cultural history of the region, and are a testament to the deep connection between the land and its people.
