FEBRUARY 2015 - The iconic El Questro Wilderness Park nestled in the heart of the Kimberley region will reopen on April 1 for the 2015 season, welcoming guests to discover its diverse offering. Boasting four varied accommodation options, as well as access to the region’s most spectacular array of natural assets – the resort has it all for those seeking an authentic Kimberley experience.
El Questro Wilderness Park’s accommodation options allow guests to choose from the internationally renowned luxury of El Questro Homestead to immersing themselves in nature at Emma Gorge Resort, enjoying the buzz of the Station Bungalows or camping beside the river at the Station Campground.
Improvements to camping facilities this season ensures an enhanced experience for caravan and tenting guests, with complete refurbishment of all bathroom facilities including modern fittings and updated decor. El Questro campsite is now home to 40 powered campsites and 18 permanent tents with power and twin bedding, providing a more comfortable campsite stay in the 2015 season.
“There is truly something for everyone at El Questro”, General Manager Lori Litwack said. “As well as our multiple accommodation offerings to suit all travellers and budgets, the wilderness park is home to natural, geographical and geological wonders that cannot be found anywhere else.”
“The Kimberley’s natural wonders can all be found within the grounds of El Questro Wilderness Park, if you’re seeking an authentic northern Western Australia experience El Questro is the place to go.”
Guests at the luxurious five-star Homestead will be treated to new additions to the already impressive dining offering with local produce remaining a key focus on chef Alan Groom’s nightly menus. Tropical and organic produce sourced from the Ord River Valley will play a starring role, and plenty of favourite dishes including Cambridge Gulf barramundi, wild rosella glaze and black liquorice ice cream making a return.
This year, The Homestead’s superb menu will be further enriched by the addition of a particularly special wine list hand picked by prolific sommelier Jeremy Oliver of The Australian Wine Annual fame.
Accessing El Questro is now easier than ever with the once-rough terrain of Gibb River Road now sealed to the Emma Gorge driveway, enabling access via 2WD vehicles, where previously a 4WD was essential. Guests can continue on to The Station Township, The Homestead and El Questro Campground with the aid of a high clearance 4WD vehicle.
