Nestled within the Kimberley’s vast and ancient landscape and hidden amongst burnt-orange cliffs and lush, green lawns sits El Questro Homestead, a pocket of luxurious exclusivity where you’re encouraged to make yourself at home.

This nine-suite hideaway is surrounded by avenues of frangipani trees and, once inside, offers chic yet cosy and comfortable interiors where bedrooms are cantilevered over the still and tranquil Chamberlain River.

Each day at the Homestead is likely to start with birdsong and end with a locally sourced three-course dinner, and matched wines, under a blanket of stars. During a stay at the Homestead guests are offered complimentary excursions, allowing for a fully immersive Kimberley experience.

With almost 700,000 acres to explore, the Homestead’s surrounding landscape is dramatic and expansive with something to offer everyone from adventurous explorers down to novice hikers and first-time four-wheel drivers.

Experiences

A stay at the Homestead would be incomplete without heading out into its surrounding outback to explore the extraordinary beauty of this unique part of the world. El Questro is awash with more than 700,000 acres of rugged ranges, towering gorges, crystal clear waters, breathtaking sunsets and, of course, the ancient Boab tree and it’s all there on the Homestead’s doorstep.

We want our guests to feel fully immersed in everything this extraordinary pocket of Australia has to offer, which is why the Homestead runs complimentary, and exclusive experiences for all guests. Facilitated by El Questro’s knowledgeable and enthusiastic rangers, Homestead experiences are always tailored, and customised, to guests’ individual preferences, all that’s required is choosing how to best explore El Questro — by helicopter, 4WD, boat or on foot.

Our Homestead experiences include boating out onto crystal clear waters and taking a cruise through sun-lit gorges, stopping only to feed the local fish, or joining your guide in a 4WD Safari vehicle for a history,  nature and wildlife tour. The Big Day Out is our signature, it is a day which allows for plenty of opportunities to spot the Kimberley Big 5: brolgas, jabirus, saltwater crocodiles, bullocks and wallaroos.

Separate from the complimentary experiences, one can see El Questro from a different perspective by heading into the Kimberley sky and taking a Homestead helicopter tour to untouched and unexplored areas of the property. We run a number of different helicopter experiences where you’ll soar over vast lush rainforests and between sunlit cliffs before landing next to remote water holes and cascading waterfalls before enjoying a swim and gourmet picnic before heading home. Alternatively, enjoy the sights from a scenic airplane flight to iconic Kimberley locations further afield.

With so many experiences to choose from the only decision Homestead guests need to make is which one to do first.
