The Homestead, El Questro
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.
Perched on a cliff top with vistas of one of the prettiest locations on the Chamberlain River, The Homestead is a relaxed retreat catering to a maximum of 18 guests.
There are a range of experiences that are included in your stay at El Questro Homestead and others you might choose to add to make your stay even more special and memorable.
Dining at El Questro Homestead is an inclusive part of your stay with us and is an extension of your Kimberley experience with menus inspired by the richness of the produce of the Ord River Valley.
Guests enjoy breakfast on the wide, sweeping veranda with uninterrupted views to the Chamberlain Gorge as they watch the morning sun warm the surrounding ranges with a soft pink glow.
Lunch is served at communal dining table under a shady awning as guests swap tales of their morning adventures and enjoy a chilled glass of Western Australian white wine.
Dinner is hosted under the stars, at either the communal table or guests may dine privately at one of the three locations overlooking the Gorge. The modern Australian menu, changes daily and showcases local, seasonal produce.
What To Expect
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.
Homestead Garden Room
Homestead rooms offer private verandas overlooking the contrast of the lush gardens and the rich red expanse beyond. With lounge furniture from which to relax and unwind at the end of the day, watch the sunset before heading to the evening drinks, canapes and dinner under the stars.
Gorge View Rooms
These stylish and modern rooms feature private decks overlooking the spectacular Chamberlain Gorge. Watch the sunrise with a morning cup of coffee before getting ready for another adventure-filled day or relax at the end of the day in the private al fresco stone bathtub cantilevered, again with views over the Gorge.
Cliff Side Retreats
The freestanding Cliff Side Retreats are situated at the edge of a sheer escarpment overlooking the wild and natural beauty of the Kimberley. Uninterrupted views of the Chamberlain Gorge can be enjoyed from your luxurious feather topped bed. Secluded by high stone garden walls your privacy is assured as you enjoy the free-standing outdoor bath.
The Chamberlain Suite
El Questro Homestead’s most luxurious suite is perched atop the Chamberlain Gorge and, from the suite’s wrap around veranda, offers awe-inspiring views from which to enjoy sunset and sunrise. From the suite’s outdoor relaxing lounge and dining area you can rest and reminisce about your day before bathing in the private double deluxe bath overlooking the Chamberlain Gorge and enjoy a drink before dinner.
