Hidden within the fiery red of El Questro's Cockburn Ranges, lies the spectacular Emma Gorge Resort.
Emma Gorge, located just off the famed Gibb River Road, features a droplet waterfall leading into a perfectly formed plunge pool. It’s one of the most impressive natural sights in the Kimberley region – a bold claim considering the beauty of its sweeping bushland and towering red rock formations. After a dip in its waters, be sure to take a walk along the base of the gorge past the butterfly-filled trees and vines dominated by the stone escarpments.
With raised roofs and outside seating, Emma Gorge Resort’s tented cabins are a far cry from the camping you did as a child. The cabins themselves are raised off the floor and the outer can be rolled up in parts not only to promote airflow but to invite the sounds and scents of the bush in. Beds are fitted with high quality linen and a private en suite bathroom rounds off the glamping experience.
The resort’s spacious verandah restaurant looks out across the camp’s sprawling lawns to the Cockburn Range – a gorgeous backdrop to an internationally inspired menu. Highlights included local beef and barramundi, which form the foundations of the excellent Asian salads and ‘sky-high burgers’. For breakfast, dine à la carte or choose from a buffet that features Ord Valley grown tropical fruit. If you’re heading out, why not request a gourmet picnic lunch to fuel your hiking endeavours or return to an indulgent high tea of smoke salmon, cocktail sandwiches and buttermilk scones?
Palm and pandanus tree lined gravel paths link your tented cabin with the resort’s facilities and the gorge beyond. Cool off after a day spent in the Australian sun with a dip in the outdoor pool or simply bring a book to relax with under the native trees of the resort’s landscaped gardens. In the evening, enjoy a cool drink as the sun sets over the red of the Kimberley outback.
