El Questro Homestead

Residing in the vast wilderness of East Kimberley, El Questro Homestead stands as a tranquil haven within the rugged natural beauty of one of Australia’s last great frontiers.

This secluded estate seamlessly marries luxury with adventure, offering a range of exclusive experiences. Wander through lush gorges, uncover hidden waterfalls, and discover serene fishing spots.

The Homestead, reserved for just 20 guests, boasts ten private suites, each providing a sanctuary with eyecatching views—especially from the six suites featuring private decks overlooking the Chamberlain River. Thrill-seekers can take to the skies in a helicopter to explore remote spots or embark on guided bushwalks, immersing themselves in the pristine Australian wilderness. As the day concludes, retreat to the comforts of the Homestead, a sanctuary where relaxation and nature converge in perfect harmony.

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.
