El Questro - Emma Gorge
El Questro in the past decade has become synoymous with tourism in the Kimberley. This was, and still partly is, a working property but these days tourism brings in an awful lot of money in peak tourist season.
The camp grounds and resorts are full and there's a continual flow of tourists in and out of the place. One of the main places they go to is Emma Falls. Though they may claim exuberant times for walking up there and back, it's really not that far if you're a fit walker.
Frankly I was appalled when they reckoned I wouldn't make it in and hour and refused me entry yet, the next day I walked up there in 40 minutes. I realise they have to cater for all types but I certainly found it frustrating.
When you get to the spectacular horseshoe shaped canyon known as Emma, it leaves any other scenery you have viewed en route in the shade.
It truly is one of those special places that you should endeavour to see when you're in the Kimberley.
Though the road in is dirt, the people who own the property maintain it to a higher standard than any government roads I travelled on in W.A.
