Secluded from other campers, there are just 30 Private Riverside sites, named after their inhabitants, such as "Willy Wagtail", "Bustard" or "Sea Eagle". These private camping sites are situated further along the Pentecost River, yet close to the heart of the property. They are approximately a 10 minute drive from The Station's central facilities, which are available for use by all campers.

Please be aware that sizes of sites, shade and access to eco loos vary. Please also note that most sites are not suitable for swimming.

The style of El Questro campsite you choose depends on the experience you wish to enjoy.

“Relaxing time surrounded by beauty”

“We stayed in the 5 star tents, all though very hot it was all we needed and very peaceful. The walk to Emma Gorge is a must once you get there the water and surrounds are to die for. The pool area was large and the water nice. The food was excellent and prices were very reasonable. Staff are brilliant”


“El Questro and Emma Gorge offer breathtaking scenery and surroundings. Plenty to keep active and adventurous visitors happy. Very comfortable accommodation though not glamorous. Great service, friendly and knowledgeable staff. One visit is not enough.”
