Heading to El Questro station I recommend turning off early to Emma Gorge. The tents are raised with a little wooden verandah. All rooms have a double and 2 single beds to accommodate a family. I like number 13 as it is quite private with...More
We stayed at Emma Gorge resort and loved it. The accommodation is very high quality and the setting is absolutely beautiful. The cabins are well appointed, everything you could need and well spaced apart so that you had privacy and couldn't hear others. The food...More
We enjoyed 2nights here. Impressed by plumbing and en suites in village atmosphere of cabin/tent accommodation. Staff were all very welcoming and friendly and the buffet style meals were very adequate and well organised for large groups of tourists. Brave hearts climbed to the waterfall...More
Very roomy "glamping" tents with a double bed and two singles. Ensuite was extremely comfortable, modern and well appointed. We enjoyed a fascinating gorge walk and natural, cool pools. The restaurant, buffet and bar are exceptional for this location. Expensive, but well worth the comfort.
Emma Gorge resort is conveniently located at the 'start' of the Gibb River Road and a MUCH cheaper alternative to the overpriced El Questro homestead and a nice choice if you are not a fan of hard core camping! Tents with ensuite, a pool and...More

Hello, while I don't like to disagree however Emma Gorge for is considered to be quite challenging universally. I'm an experienced traveller in my 50s and did a trip to Kakadu a few years ago and some of those walks are really difficult so I have a basis of comparison. We did a tour of the Kimberley with Outback Spirit due to the difficulty of reaching some of the spots and also our time constraints. We had an absolutely fantastic trip. The three significant walks of trip (excluding the Bungle Bungles which was hot but no challenge) were Bell Gorge, Mitchell Falls and Emma Gorge. Bell Gorge was pretty easy and you were rewarded by the most sensational swim. The walk to Mitchell Falls isn't that difficult but you certainly have to take your time due to the heat and also there is lots of up and down tracks, climbing over rocks etc and I'd say I drank easily 2 litres of water or more and 3 swims along the way. Have to say it was the most spectacular walk I've ever done - despite the 39 degree heat. Of the 20 people on our tour which ranged in age from 50 - 70, half did the Mitchell Falls walk and only 8 did the Emma Gorge walk due to the tour guide's comment. He said that it was easily the most difficult of the three. Having been on the go non-stop for several days before we got to Emma Gorge and was feeling rather exhausted so I opted not to do it. Feedback from the people who went was that it was absolutely amazing and well worth it. So my advice would be to start early in the morning, make sure you do have really good walking shoes that won't get slippery if you walk on wet rocks. Apparently plenty of the walk is in shade which will help. The good thing about this walk is that if you get to a point where it's getting too much you can turn back. On the Mitchell Falls walk that wasn't an option as you walk all the way in and then (in our case get a helicopter out). Make sure you have plenty of water with you as well. I have no doubt you will enjoy the area, for us the trip to the Kimberley was the trip of a lifetime.
