El Questro Wilderness Park, The Kimberley - 24th August 2009
El Questro Wilderness Park is probably best known for his homestead, where stars such as the cast of Australia have stayed. (I will have to finally watch that movie after having seen so many of the locations where it was filmed.) However, there is also camping available for us people on smaller budgets. (One warning though, there is an extra "Wilderness Pass" to pay for in addition to the camping, which makes it rather expensive.) The gorges in this part of the Kimberley are different due to the pockets of rainforest growing in many of them. Whilst staying overnight we saw (and swam at) El Questro Gorge, enjoyed Zebedee Springs (see above), and visited the magnificent Emma Gorge (see below), where we swam in a waterfall plunge pool surrounded on three sides by sheer red cliffs.
