    Yes it’s everything and more
    Everything you hear about El Questro is true, an oasis in The Kimberley Beautiful rooms with modern amenities ( note sink in cabins are a bit small so water goes everywhere) River view cabins are well equipped with the pentacost river right at your door. Very quiet however note their is live music in the bar area of an evening The stakehouse has high quality meals and service With pretty reasonable pricing Activities and excursions around the homestead are fantastic eaither self guided or with a group / guide Take away meals are good, pizza and burgers Note the crossings into the homestead can be challenging particularly if not in a 4wd , at one point the water was over the side steps of our fwd. Not a lot of lighting around the camp areas if walking around at night e.g coming back from diner etc so may need a head torch

    Boat tour
    The 16 year old lad who was our tour guide on the boat cruise was absolutely incredible. He made the boat trip informative and interesting and handled complex cultural questions extremely well. What an informative young man. Thanks Buster

    Customer service
    We arrived at the caravan park and as we were trying to fit everything in, wanted to do a tour that afternoon. A delightful lass (Raeleen)? went out of her way to accommodate us making 2 extra phone calls as she could see that we were disappointed about not being able to do a particular tour to Zebedee springs. Finally got us joining another group and we were able to enjoy the warm springs. Loved our stay and great customer service.

We really wanted to enjoy this location but it’s been a disappointment for us.
Sites are far too small and everyone is on-top of each other. Anyone booking be aware of your site size that you book. Our biggest grief is that this place promotes as dog friendly. Sure you can have your dog with you but you then can’t do anything. We are leaving early as we can’t visit any location, what’s worse is that this is not disclosed until you drive to a site and there is that little 2 inch square down the bottom of a sign with a strike thru dogs. Amenities are clean and staff friendly, steak house was nice but dont expect the lavish meal promoted. My advice to El Questro management - Full Disclosure when asked about dogs. Having people ask the question in a general manner doesn’t automatically give you the right to mislead people. - This place is not for dogs, but you wont be told that. Staff didn’t even know when asked.

Elquestro gorge has a very deep water crossing on the track. It’s sign simply says “caution deep water crossing” no depth markers. No waring from reception at check in. No signs anywhere informing you of the depth of the crossing. All the river crossings into the park and along the Gibb are similar depths. This crossing is about 1m deep with deeper sections. We had a snorkel, if you didn’t you would damage your car. We did get water in the car, along with another group we travelled with.
The new park owners have no duty of care to its guests and charge a fortune to not maintain its water crossings. I get the 4wd tracks add to the experience but this depth is damaging to vehicles.

We were picked up at 6:30am in Kununurra and headed off to Emma Gorge. There was a dozen of us hiking the Emma Gorge. I am rather slow on the rocks and ended up with another couple way behind the rest of the group. We finally made it to the rock pool and ensured I had a refreshing swim. yes it was cold to begin with. Our tour guide stayed with us on the way back. I presume it was a time issue to ensure we finished. There are many big boulders and water crossings, be aware it is not an easy hike. I felt the walk was rushed and didn't appreciate our amazing surroundings. After morning tea at Emma Cafe, we then headed for Zebedee Springs for a soak in the natural spring waters. Very relaxing and refreshing after the hike. then to the station for a cooked lunch before our cruise down the Chamberlain Gorge. Very relaxing and spotted rock wallabies, drank bubbles and ate fruit while feeding spitting fish. It was a quirky and fun way to enjoy the afternoon before the long drive back to Kununurra.

It's a really long drive to get here but I think it's worth it for the activities we did.
1. Emma Gorge - I wrote a separate review
2. Zebedee falls - yes it's crowded but it's funny to see every single pool of water filled with people. Visitors are generally decent and won't stay too long so you can have your turn sitting in the very warm water.
3. Emma Gorge resort had very decent glamping and good food, AND is right next to the starting point of the Emma Gorge hike. The Homestead looks amazing but is a lot pricier.
4. Cruise through Chamberlain gorge - the gorge is not the most spectacular, but the feeding of the archerfish was very cool, and we spotted a huge barramundi and multiple rock wallabies (which are difficult to see if you don't have trained eyes)

Didn't have enough time to explore the other walks in the park.

If I had my time again I'd consider flying in cos the drive is not something I'd want to repeat.

A day tour to El Questro started with a long drive out to the station. Firstly we went on the delightful Chamberlain Gorge river tour. The guides were knowledgeable and fun and served sparkling wine and fruit salad. The scenery was lovely and showed off the brilliant colours of the Kimberley rock. The spitting fish were a highlight.

We then stopped off at Zebedee Springs. They had been talked up them as lovely thermal pools but really are very small and with just 20 people they were full. The vegetation was lovely but really sitting in a hot spring in 30 degree heat seemed pointless.

We then stopped off for lunch at the homestead. While they provided reasonably priced food and beer there was little to do. Overall a little disappointing espcially as it is quite a drive out.
