A beautiful oasis in the middle of the dry and dusty El Questro Wilderness Park. Extremely comfortable glamping accommodation, great hospitality staff, food and facilities. Access to lovely gorge walks.

Starts at the resort and takes about 2 hours excluding stops. The average person wearing sneakers would manage. Would be a bit dark late in the afternoon.

It is quite a trek up the valley to get there from the resort but it is so worthwhile. When you get to the end, there is a lovely pool and waterfall. The water is VERY cold.

Nef I would add Bell Creek Gorge (simply the most beautiful of all) Manning Gorge and the Falls there also fabulous, Barnett Gorge and Leonards Gorges El Questro and the Gorge of the Chamberlain River is in my opinion also very well worth seeing.

We did the Bungle Bungle flight from Kununurra. You also fly over Lake Argyle and Argyle Diamond Mines. Took 2.5 hours p/u and d/o from and to your hotel included. Great tour! That was 5 years back though so no updated info. Tet
