Self-guided hiking through the El Questro Wilderness Park is a unique and personal experience perfect for any skill level. Explore over 200km of tracks and trails offering incredible views of palm-fringed waterholes, towering cliff faces and close encounters with the wildlife. Emma Gorge Trail As one of the best-known, most spectacular gorges of the Kimberley, Emma Gorge is a sight to behold. The brisk 1-hour walk ends at a large cool waterhole, graced by a droplet waterfall, perfect for a relaxing swim. Graced by a 65m droplet waterfall, perfect for for a relaxing swim. Nestled beneath towering cliffs, a second smaller thermal water outlet trickles from the rocks. El Questro Gorge Trail Walk along a narrow spring-fed creek, 1.3km through fern-dressed escarpments to a small swimming hole and unwind in the rainforest environment. More adventurous hikers continue on from this halfway point, allowing another 1.5 hours to reach the top as the path increases in difficulty. Amalia Gorge Trail A fairly easy walk in the dry season, this requires some level of fitness and balance as the trail does involve some rock scrambling and ledge hopping. However, the best time to see Amalia Gorge is after the wet season when a mass of waterfalls cascade from one pool to the next. The 1.7km walk each way should take about one hour. Zebedee Springs Hike a short 750m distance to Zebedee Springs, through dense Livistonia Palms that open to a series of rocky thermal pools. This trail is open to general public from 7.00am – 12 noon daily. We ask that you respect that this trail is closed in the afternoon to facilitate private tour groups to this area, helping to ease the pressure on this delicate ecosystem. Saddleback Ridge Begin the hike to Saddleback Ridge at the Township, where the round trip should take about two hours. The viewing platform atop the ridge is one of the most spectacular lookout points on El Questro. This is a shared walking and 4WD trail; visitors can walk or drive the track, although experienced drivers only are recommended as the track up is steep and narrow. Moonshine Gorge Circuit Walk The Moonshine Gorge Circuit trail follows Moonshine creek, with tall Livistona Palms and cliff faces on both sides providing shade and plenty of areas to rest and swim. A 5km trek, this is a 2.5-hour hike. Champagne Springs Hiking to Champagne Springs is much different than the other El Questro walk. The 4.8km riverside trail is long with broken terrain, and promises added difficulty toward the end. The rigor is worth the reward though, as you reach the top to find pools, lush scenery and soothing thermal springs. The Station Walks Take a leisurely stroll from The Station along the Pentecost River, or for a more rigorous experience, veer up to Telecom Hill. Find shallow swimming holes and go for a dip while taking in the magnificent El Questro surroundings.
