Oz Trip - Day 84

Day 84 – 24/7/2012 – El Questro Wilderness Park

We left Kununurra at about 7:30am and arrived at El Questro Wilderness Park at about 10am. Even though there were a lot of people checking in, we were lucky enough to get a private camp site 5.5km away from the Station Store and main camp ground. It was great. We couldn't see any other camp sites from ours.

After setting up camp, having a bit of lunch and a bit of a rest we headed off to have a bit of a look around. First stop was the jetty at the start of Chamberlain Gorge. We didn't hire a boat or do a tour so I don't think we could see the Gorge from the jetty.

Next stop was Branco's lookout. There was a big river crossing to get to the other side. It wasn't deep but very rocky. Once across the other side you had a good view of the really expensive El Questro Homestead luxury accommodation. At a starting price of $1,940 per night for the basic room with a min of a 2 night stay!

This is about as close as we will ever get to the Homestead!

On the way back to camp we also went to another lookout which gave a different perspective of the area.
