Set in one million acres of remote wilderness in the Kimberley region, the El Questro Homestead is in a fairly awe-inspiring location, and is a haven for wildlife.

Miranda is here to help give you the inside track.

The Homestead itself has only six rooms, including one suite. Most have spectacular views, particularly the three new Cliff Side Retreats, which have river views, outdoor showers and a free-standing bath on the deck; and the Chamberlain Gorge Suite which perches on the edge of the gorge, has floor to ceiling glass windows and an outdoor bath big enough for two. The other rooms are in the Homestead, and open out into the lush gardens.

El Questro serves its food al fresco, either at the large communal table by the pool or on one of the three private tables by the edge of the gorge. Fresh local produce is used throughout, and we recommend the barramundi with boab root salsa. Alternatively, take a dawn drive up to Branco's Lookout for a romantic champagne breakfast, or order a picnic hamper and eat in a shady spot.

Facilities include a swimming pool and tennis courts, and the million acres of land that surround the homestead is the perfect playground. Go on guided nature walks, boat trips on the Chamberlain gorge, and explore the scenery on horseback. Guests can also fish in spots only accessible by helicopter and relax in the Zebedee thermal springs. Further afield, visit the Bungle Bungle sandstone formation and the Argyle diamond mine.

Why we love it

Set within no less than a million acres, the area is a minefield of wildlife and spectacular sights. The best way to get around is by horseback or helicopter, the former to get the adrenalin flowing and the latter to reach those otherwise unaccessible places such as the Miri Miri waterfall.
