El Questro Wilderness Park:

El Questro Wilderness Park covers one million acres of truly awe-inspiring landscapes. From rugged sandstone ranges and broad tidal flats, to rainforest pockets, gorges and permanent waterfalls, it also has four major river systems – from fresh water springs to the lazy salt-water estuaries in the northern part of the property. Water in Kimberley attracts an abundance of animals, fish and bird life congregating near rivers and waterholes and we are able to safely enjoy the places, walks, waterholes and springs.

We chose this place as our base as it has the wilderness as well as the comforts.

Accommodation coverd by us is camping in your own tents. We base ourselves near the Station Hub, where eating options and laundry facilities are available. You are welcome to upgrade to a bungalow for example below (may not be exactly this one).
