El Questro Homestead

El Questro Homestead has become a by-word for absolute luxury within the Australian wilds. Located in the heart of the beautiful, forbidding Kimberley, The Homestead is an exclusive retreat open to just 18 guests.

“This hideaway is contemporary and relaxed, and exudes privilege. The manicured lawn, the grandee furnishings, the note-perfect staff – all perched 15 metres over the Chamberlain River…”

Sunday Times (UK)

The Kimberley

Kununurra was founded in 1963 to serve the huge Ord River irrigation scheme and generate a food basket in the wilderness. Nearby Lake Argyle is a man-made lake 25 times larger than Sydney Harbour and a spectacular sight. Other nearby attractions include the Argyle Diamond Mine, the source of fabled pink diamonds.

Kununurra serves as the main township to the East Kimberley including the Bungle Bungle Range that makes up Purnululu National Park, renowned for its striking sandstone domes, striped with orange and grey bands.

The Kimberley Region is vast, covering an expanse of nearly 423,000 square kilometres. With an estimated population of just 30,000 it has fewer people per square kilometre than almost any other place on Earth. It’s known for its mighty rivers, huge ranges and lush – almost magical – waterholes.

The region’s western-most gateway is Broome, famous for its stunning coastal location and pearling industry.
