Driving Conditions Be careful not to underestimate travelling time when driving in the Kimberley. Allow an average speed of 80 kilometers per hour on sealed roads and 50 km per hour on unsealed roads. Always ensure you carry adequate supplies of fuel, food and most importantly, water. Nearly all of the Kimberley is cattle country, most roads are unfenced, which means cattle, horses, and donkeys can wander across the road at any time. Night driving can be dangerous due to straying animals. Extreme care is advised. Large road trains (semi trailer with three other trailers) can be up to 50 meters long. Caution is recommended when overtaking these vehicles. Up-to-date road conditions and information are available 24 hours a day on 1800 013 314. 4WD Hire Whilst El Questro does provide return road transfers from Kununurra, as well as guided tours, more adventurous and independent guests should consider hiring a 4WD vehicle for their stay at El Questro.
