A cruise on the calm waters of Chamberlain Gorge is one of the best introductions to the El Questro Wilderness Park and its one million acres of spectacular outback landscapes. As you glide by the 200-foot escarpment of the ancient gorge, look out for rock wallabies, Johnston crocodiles and the incredibly cunning archer fish.
El Questro Homestead overlooks Chamberlain Gorge and can be reached within two hours from Kununurra via the legendary Gibb River Road – one of Australia’s most unique 4WD adventures. Air transfers are also available from Kununurra for those who wish to arrive with speed and style. Access to the park is only available in the dry season, between May and September.
You can book a room with a view, perched high above the Chamberlain River, and take in the outback panorama from the comfort of your own private deck.
There’s also the chance to experience one of the most dramatic fine dining evenings on Earth by taking a cliff-top table at the Homestead, overlooking Chamberlain Gorge as the sun sets and the stars blanket the Kimberley night sky.
