Kimberley, Western Australia
In the middle of almost 1 million acres of rugged wilderness, the luxurious accommodations at El Questro Homestead sit in stark contrast to Western Australia’s untamed terrain. This boutique property, with just nine rooms and suites, offers an incomparable combination of luxury in the wild heart of one of Australia’s last true frontiers.
The enormity of the Wilderness Park (10 times the size of Switzerland) offers an endless array of activities for the adventurous spirit. From barramundi fishing and bird watching, to waterfalls, thermal springs, horseback adventures, or helicopter rides, guests can lose themselves in the rugged landscapes, enjoying the amazing selection of flora and fauna native to the land.
The Homestead itself offers a luxurious base for exploring the diverse landscape. A maximum of 18 guests can enjoy exceptional peace, privacy, and relaxation perched atop the Chamberlain Gorge. With luxury driving design, all rooms feature sleek furnishings, double king beds, and private verandahs. Some also include outdoor bathtubs or dining areas, for unique experiences under the stars.
