El Questro named best Outback experience

Article content

25 June 2013 by Luke McCormick

El Questro Homestead has been voted the Best Outback Experience at the 2013 Australian Gourmet Traveller Travel Awards, one of Australia's most prestigious travel awards.

The awards were held at the Crown Towers in Melbourne amid a distinguished audience of Australia's travel industry, recognising outstanding Australian tourism operators from the coast to the outback.

El Questro Homestead occupies a pocket of luxury in the Kimberley region in the million acre El Questro Wilderness Park, 110 km from Kununurra.

The luxury nine-room Homestead is dramatically cantilevered over the Chamberlain River, set amid a landscape of salt plains, gorges, hot thermal springs and the backdrop of the Cockburn Ranges.

Lori Litwack, General Manager of El Questro Homestead said: "We are delighted to have been voted the Best Outback Experience. We have a fantastic team of people working here to ensure every visitor has the best experience here at El Questro, so we are thrilled to have been recognised for our hard work and commitment."

Guests staying at the Homestead can enjoy luxury accommodation in three new stylish Cliff Side Retreats, bringing the total number of suites to just nine at this exclusive property.

The Cliff Side Retreats offer uninterrupted views of the rugged scenery courtesy of the floor‐to‐ceiling sliding glass walls. From the shower, guests can access either the free standing bath on the verandah or the garden rain shower surrounded by magnificent stone wall that ensure complete privacy.

Dining at the Homestead is enjoyed under the stars, at either of the large communal tables by the pool and on the verandah, or on one of the three private tables by the gorge edge. As a treat, guests can dine at one of the incredibly romantic tables on the edge of the cliff overlooking the Chamberlain River, and with a soundtrack of owls and frogs.

El Questro's diverse terrain made for the perfect fashion backdrop, ranging from deep gorges to red‐rock ranges and sheer cliffs, resplendent with vast mud flats, hidden rainforests, boab trees and thermal springs.
