I always thought El Questro was just some fancy accommodation that people with a serious cases of status anxiety squandered thousands of dollars a night on. I was only partly correct. It’s also laden with tremendous natural scenery, gorges, waterfalls and waterholes.
We stayed a few nights at the camp grounds, paying the most we’d ever paid for unpowered camping, but it was worth it. The walking trails and waterholes and stuff are awesome. The bar at the camp is good too. One night some dude was playing his original electronic music coupled with lots of percussion and didgeridoo. He was good entertainment but I forget his name.
The closest us mundane common-folk can get to the fancy luxury is when crossing the Chamberlain River in our non-luxury 4WD. From this point views of the homestead can be seen further up the Chamberlain Gorge.
