El Questro Station - History


The East Kimberley region of Western Australia was settled very late in the scheme of things and remains one of the world's last frontiers. El Questro Station was a 1,000,000 acre working Cattle Station running some 80 km into the heart of the Kimberley; largely unexplored with four major rivers systems; fabulous gorges; amazing flora and fauna and waterfalls and thermal pools set in lush tropical oasis. In 1991, young English aristocrat Will Burroughs, who had spent some time as a drover and Jackroo in the Australian outback, bought and developed El Questro Station into an Australian outback destination. El Questro Station quickly gained and maintained iconic status, with the main Homestead being cantilevered out over the Chamberlain Gorge.
 

El Questro Wilderness Park - Today


New owners transformed El Questro Station into El Questro Wilderness Park. Some 8,000 head of cattle are still run on the property, with cattle farming now being secondary to tourism. Indigenous guides and rangers are available to identify the aboriginal history of the region, which is considered to be one of the world's most unique holiday destinations, making for an unforgettable experience. The spectacular animal, bird and fish life that abound in the region are frequently observed congregating on the many rivers, springs, and waterholes throughout the area.
 

El Questro Wilderness Park - Attractions


Experiences at El Questro include a helicopter ride to fish for Barramundi in pristine waters, or a flyover of the area to view the wild horses, gorges, canyons, caves and waterfalls; or boating along the 3 km fresh water Chamberlain gorge, with the 65 m escarpment of the Chamberlain Gorge towering above to view the ancient Wandjina rock art; or hiking to Zebedee Springs to enjoy a soak in an artesian thermal pool set in a tropical oasis. Perhaps photographing some of the cross bred Shorthorn and Brahman cattle grassing; or taking a horse trek to spot wild horses brumbies, wild donkeys, bustards bush turkeys, or frill necked lizards, goannas, dancing brolgas, jabirus or jewel coloured parrots of the East Kimberley.
