Day-by-Day Itinerary

Day 1

Welcome to the remote East Kimberley region of Western Australia! Your private driver will collect you from your accommodation or Kununurra airport this morning for your transfer to Emma Gorge where you'll meet your private guide. Enjoy a moderately-challenging 2-3 hour return walk into the gorge, with a rewarding swim in the large cooling waterhole set at the base of towering 65m gorge walls. After the walk back out of Emma Gorge, your guide will transfer you to the Homestead where your El Questro host will meet you with a glass of bubbles on arrival. You'll have time to freshen up before evening drinks and canapes, followed by dinner on the terrace or overlooking Chamberlain Gorge under the stars. Enjoy a choice of modern Australian cuisine showcasing local, seasonal produce and fine wines over a five course tasting menu.

Day 2

We recommend an early start and breakfast on the sweeping veranda overlooking Chamberlain Gorge so you can watch the rising sun transform the surrounding ranges with a soft pink glow. After breakfast, join your private guide for an adventurous hike through El Questro Gorge today. The walk starts easily enough with a pleasant stroll through palms and rainforest, along a spring-fed creek at the base of the gorge. You'll encounter some boulders along the valley before arriving at a small, crystal-clear swimming hole. Relax here with a drink and take in the beauty of the rainforest. From this halfway point the trail becomes more challenging, but the waterfall and beautiful swimming hole that await at the end of this trail are spectacular. This second half of the track takes a further 1.5 hours and is suitable for the fit and adventurous. We recommend speaking with your El Questro guide to confirm which option will suit your experience level and conditions. This afternoon, enjoy exclusive access to Zebedee thermal springs as a Homestead guest and soak in the warm healing waters while it is peaceful and closed to the public, with champagne and other beverages included to ensure a memorable experience. Tonight another evening of food and wine at the Homestead awaits. You can
