Helicopter Miri Miri Waterfall Tour
Hidden in a remote corner of the Wilderness Park is Miri Miri Falls where spring-fed water cascades over a 50 metre fall from the plateau into a deep pool, which then opens up into a dense valley of Livistonia palms and paperbarks.
Take a dip in the refreshing pool overlooked by nature then enjoy a gourmet picnic lunch, all while revelling in one of El Questro's most secluded attractions.
Chamberlain Gorge Cruise
Boating along the Chamberlain Gorge is a must do while visiting El Questro. Only accessible by boat, this 3km fresh waterhole is surrounded by the Kimberley’s diverse flora and fauna and eclipsed by towering escarpments. While taking in the breathtaking scenery you’ll enjoy sparkling wine and fresh fruit from the local Ord valley. While you’re out on the water, ask your Ranger about the cheeky, spitting Archer fish and large, swirling Barramundi who’ll be sure to swim near the boat.
4WD Barramundi Fishing Tours
Head out on a 4WD fishing adventure with one of our fishing Guides to a secret spot on the Pentecost River. With the help of a little local knowledge you’ll be reeling in a Barramundi or even a Mangrove Jack, Threadfin Salmon, or Black Bream in no time.
You don’t have to be an expert to jump on board as your Guide will teach you the basics as you go. There’s plenty of wildlife to be spotted, too, and estuarine crocodiles and sea eagles are commonly spotted along the Pentecost River.
