Some of the Homestead’s complimentary activities:
Private Chamberlain Cruise
Boating through the Chamberlain Gorge is a must. An El Questro ranger will take you on a private cruise of this 3 km fresh waterhole in the Homestead’s private “dinghy”. Enjoy the diverse flora and fauna; resident Rock Wallabies, Johnston Crocodiles and the always cheeky Archer Fish are familiar inhabitants of the gorge.
Zebedee Thermal Springs
Exclusive use of Zebedee Springs is offered to Homestead guests every afternoon. Let an El Questro Ranger drive you in style to the most romantic of hideaways. Take a short walk through dense, tropical vegetation to a series of thermal pools and small waterfalls. Set amongst a backdrop of sheer cliffs and Livistonia palms, Zebedee Springs is a magical place to relax and rejuvenate after a busy day.
Bird Watching Tour
Join an El Questro Ranger on an early morning excursion to bird watching sites near the Homestead. The variety of ecosystems in the park attracts 100 different bird species including Pheasant Coucols, dancing Brolgas and even the once near extinct Gouldian Finch. Take part in the friendly competition to see who can spot the most birds from the list. Binoculars and field guide are provided.
Food & Wine
At El Questro Homestead, food and wine are as much an attraction as the wild country that envelopes the property. Every meal is brimming with ingredients of superb pedigree and quality, leaving guests to forget that 3,500 km of rock and desert lies between the Kimberley and Perth.
The neighbouring Ord River Valley nurtures growers who provide a vast array of tropical and organic produce, supplemented by the abundant riches of Western Australia’s coastlines and paddocks.
Guests are encouraged to choose from a selection of dining locations, from a private cliff top to the Homestead’s spacious verandas. Wherever guests decide to dine, it will almost always be situated under a canopy of stars.
Chef Alan Groom’s spirit of generosity is always evident, as in his hand crafted fare and bountiful luxe flourishes, married together in simple preparations that allow the flavours to shine
Homestead rooms offer private verandas overlooking the contrast of the lush gardens and the rich red expanse beyond. With lounge furniture from which to relax and unwind at the end of the day, watch the sunset before heading to the evening drinks, canapes and dinner under the stars.
