El Questro extends over 700,000 acres of vast terrain, located in the East Kimberly. Made up of a beautiful mix of rugged sandstone ranges, broad tidal flats, thermal springs, rich rainforest pockets, and waterfalls. El Questro is a very special place and perfect for those with a sense of adventure, with most of the region left unexplored. Whether you choose to explore the area by air, land, horse or water, you’ll be immersed in a rich abundance of natural, native and ancient flora and fauna.

Named in 1958 by Torrance McMicking, the name El Questro still remains a mystery to all, with suggestions floating around. The mystery surrounding the name only adds to the magic of El Questro.
