It's not an easy walk in but we're in our 70's and we made it OK. Really beautiful spot worth the visit. We thought it was a bit over the top charging $12 per head for a day visit though..

The location, the set out and staff were fabulous. Highly recommended over ElQuestro even though same company, they care here. Worth the visit, the walk and the drink after. Well done great and superior to down the road.

This hike starts out on the flat, but begins to climb through rocky, uneven terrain. But the different pools, as well as the pool at the end of Emma Gorge, are spectacular. The different geology is interesting too; a lot of fossilized wave rocks and...More

We stopped here for coffee before our heli flight. We decided to do this instead of the walk as we were short on time & there wasn't much water flowing at the time. Very pretty place with a large meals area.

Had a very cold but exhilarating swim in the gorge under the waterfall. The track, however is poorly formed and maintained so watch you step!

Great walk in, some fitness required. Take good boots and water. You will need to swim! Take river shoes to protect feet. Enjoy

Amazing gorge. It's about a 2 km walk up an amazing gorge which ends in a waterfall and very refreshing swimming - the hot springs are to the right hand side of the pool.

Emma Gorge (3.2 km 2 hrs return) No wonder this is such a huge attraction at El Questro! A great hike along a creek bed over sand, pebbles and boulders to a beautiful pool and waterfall. Much easier than the Amalia walk and El Questro...More
