El Questro Station is around 20km from the Eastern end of the Gibb. We had all done some research and were pumped about the stay. From our perspective, this was the beginning of our Kimberly experience and El Questro lived up to expectation.
We had stopped to cut up some firewood on the way to El Questro. By the time we’d gotten wood, booked in and got to the camp, it was about 5:30pm. The sun was setting and provide a beautiful back drop while we set up camp. The camp was quite full but we drove around a little and found a spot that was a bit further down and in a bit of a dead-end section. This provided us with a little seclusion so we were quite happy.
We decided to splash out a little and head over to the restaurant for feed. The atmosphere was great and felt like a proper outback place. The food and service was good and we were located on a deck overlooking a pond. After dinner, we headed back to camp for a fire and another beverage or two.
There are so many great hikes that you can do on this property. We did half of the El Questro Gorge walk and you end up at a waterhole that you can swim in and cool off. There are also the Zebedee Springs which are a series of thermal rock springs set amongst beautiful Livistonia Palm Trees. Just the most amazing spot. Unfortunately it is one of the popular tourist attractions and it does detract from it having so many people there at one time. It would be incredible to experience it in the peaceful setting that it is. Definitely add this one to your list.
Close by is the beautiful Emma Gorge which is worth a visit too.
