Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

In our opinion, best gorge on the Gibb! Not as difficult (compared to Manning and El Questro) and best ‘pay off’. Stunning waterfall, beautiful big pool to swim in, crystal clear waters and thermal pool! So worth the effort! A couple little water crossing but nothing that you get wet for. A few snakes along the trail but they move away quickly. Bring water and best to do early!

We arrived just as the resort had been briefly shut due to bushfires. Emma gorge walk re-opened the day we left. Smoke and smouldering ashes everywhere. It was 34 degrees during the day, so very hot in the tents. Tents are not the most spacious or glamorous”glamping” we’ve tried, but good enough. And prefer over station options we saw. Pool was very welcome and refreshing. Restaurant alacarte much better than the steak restaurant at El Questro station (very tough steak sandwiches). Staff were great at Emma gorge and the station, we did an absolutely fabulous sunset 4wd safari tour with Dan. It was great fun. And made our stay. Would return but in June when it should be cooler.

Very rude, unhelpful staff, barely acceptable food. We had stayed at several APT wilderness lodges, with three course restaurant quality meals and wonderful staff. El Questro has such a great reputation that we were expecting more of the same. This resort served up inedible overcooked food at one dinner - returned to kitchen - and the buffet offerings at breakfast and dinner were lacklustre with no variety, running out very early. Ran out of cow's milk, siting "remoteness". This had not been a problem at APT's venues, which were even more remote. The general vibe was that they just didn't care - so deal with it. Would not recommend this resort and will not be returning.

To a large extent Emma Gorge basks in the reflected glory of El Questro Homestead’s glitzy reputation. But this is not the homestead even if even if the common dining/bar/lounging area renders a servicable imitation of same. The sprawling urban quasi-tented lodgings are simple and reasonably comfortable but their upkeep has been hit or miss and many of them are some way from the resort’s centre of gravity. The good: The very well presented “Homestead” dining/bar/lounging facilities are, apart from Emma Gorge itself, the highlight of a stay here and the comestible offerings were well presented, wholesome and tasty. Our tented suite (queen + single bed) was adequately roomy, clean, quiet and provided for a comfortable sleep. The compact ensuite bathroom was adequately equipped and mostly worked OK. The beds were comfortable and linens clean. For the most part the staff we encountered were pleasant and helpful. There is Wifi around the “Homestead” with Telstra 4G phone/data service elsewhere across the resort. Guest laundry facilities are provided. The not so good: the tented lodgings are somewhat utilitarian in appearance which imparts more of a mining camp look than that of a holiday resort. Depending upon how far your “tent” is from the “Homestead” you could be in for a long walk between dining/drinking and lodging. The drainage from our bathroom was leaking during our stay and may well have been leaking for some time because nothing was done to rectify it during our stay despite it being reported early on. We heard from other guests that they had similar problems. A few other aspects of the accomodation were also looking a bit the worse for wear.

We visited Emma Gorge Resort for the day. Impressed by the verdant surrounds, soothing, service great by Cafe staff and the Retail Store at Visitor Centre. Rebecca (great gal from Echuca) and Storme (smiling service from Banff Canada) are so friendly with all. Even met Cam and Holly, Park Rangers , looking after the environment and engaging with visitors. Great experience

Rough going to walk up the gorge.. Have sensible foot wear, a hat, water and some meet and greet fellow walkers and scramblers to see the water pools up the gorge. Worth the walk and tea and scone or muffins at the resort when you finish .👍👍 from me

This is an experience I was so lucky to be able to do. I must say that I have always longed to stay at El Questro Homestead but a friend told me that Emma Gorge at El Questro is so unique it would be a shame not to go. So we did. I was so surprised how comfortable the glamping tents were. There is no airconditioning but fans and a flow through breeze are all one needs at this time of the year - one does need to watch ones step on the way out especially in the evening as there are snakes about. The restaurant is lovely and the breakfast is wonderful served in a most amazing setting. Just one thing I missed was the pool as it was under renovation when we arrived. It will be so nice for those visiting after a hard day trekking. The staff are wonderful and all should be commended for their great hospitality.

El Questro Emmas Gorge was a wonderful place to stay -- although the hike to the gorge was much harder than I expected (my husband and I are in our 70s). But definitely worth the visit. We stayed for 2 nights and wish we could have stayed longer.

Loved out 3 nights here. So peaceful and accomodation really embraced the surroundings. A great base for the area. Pool wasn’t operational when we were visiting but that didn’t hinder us as there a plenty of beautiful places to have a dip, Emma Gorge, Zebedee Springs and Amalia Gorge were the main attractions open whilst we were there. All are a must offering different experiences. We dined at both Emma Gorge and then popped over to El Questro for a dinner also.

I was highly impressed with the accommodation and facilities on offer at Emma Gorge. The beds and ensuite in the cabins were incredibly comfortable and clean. The situation of my cabin meant I had a private deck overlooking the natural environment (although this wasn't the case for some of the other cabins) that enabled me to relax after a long day. The restaurant served a good quality buffet for breakfast and dinner, and the rustic design of the dining area blended well with the environment. Providing blankets in the room without having to ask would have helped with the cold mornings (although thanks to staff for providing a blanket on request) and being tall I kept hitting my head going in and out of the shower! The lights around the cabins also were bright and the crunch of the gravel under foot when people walked around was annoying, but provided a good level of safety that I appreciated regardless.
