What to see and do in El Questro Wilderness Park

Emma Gorge

This well known, stunning gorge is best enjoyed as part of a walk. Wander past shaded pools before reaching the end oasis, a stunning waterfall encased by sheer 65m high cliffs.

Zebedee Springs

Immerse yourself among perfect palms and mineral rich thermal springs, as you soak in the Kimberley's local vegetation. Tranquility at its best. These springs are a morning only adventure, so plan your day trip accordingly. The walk to the springs is roughly 1.5kms from the car park.

Take in the sweeping views from one of the many lookouts

Pigeon Hole, Saddleback Ridge and Branco's Lookout offer incredible vista's of the Kimberley landscape including views over the Chamberlain River. Aim to get to these summits for the end of the day, as the sinking sun casts incredible pinks and reds across the sky.
