Sale River, Western Australia
The Sale River is a river in the Kimberley of Western Australia. The headwaters of the river rise near Spong Pyramid at the southern edge of the Elizabeth and Catherine Range and flow in a westerly direction before discharging into Doubtful Bay near Storr Island. The only tributary to the Sale is the Berckelman River.
The Sale River is a beautiful spot with gorges and sandy beaches that are popular with tourists. Visitors can walk through the ancient rain forest or take a swim. Dinghies are needed to be able to make your way to the freshwater influence, where there are some very pretty walks amongst shaded pools provided by dense riverine canopy. Tree ferns, Rufous Owls and Northern Quolls can be seen here and on top of the escarpments the enigmatic Black Grasswrens.
