Oasis in amongst the trees. The tents were unbelievable! A couple of steps at front of tent up to a tiny landing. Open the door to wow! A single bed and a queen bed. Wooden floor! Fully tiled ensuite! No TV! Bliss! No locks but...More
Don't get me wrong, Emma Gorge is well worth it. Amazing place for walk, a swim, and a look at a wonderful part of nature. Emma Gorge Resort, however, is not. We stayed here for 2 nights. The "glamping tents" look a lot different in...More
Loved this place - it was the highlight of our Kimberley trip. The tents were very high quality, spacious and well equipped.. The location was stunning - our tent was towards the end of the row under the escarpment of the Gorge. A beautiful spot...More
We stopped at the restaurant with my partner for a meal as we wanted to check the place out to possibly stay next time we were in Kununurra. The food took ages. I mean ages!!! Staff were way too laissez-faire and the prices were high....More
We stayed during for 2 nights and enjoyed the time away from the must haves of modern life. The safari tent was roomy with basic lighting, electric jug and ensuite. The bed was comfortable and the tent clean and tidy, and there were 2 single...More

Hello, while I don't like to disagree however Emma Gorge for is considered to be quite challenging universally. I'm an experienced traveller in my 50s and did a trip to Kakadu a few years ago and some of those walks are really difficult so I have a basis of comparison. We did a tour of the Kimberley with Outback Spirit due to the difficulty of reaching some of the spots and also our time constraints. We had an absolutely fantastic trip. The three significant walks of trip (excluding the Bungle Bungles which was hot but no challenge) were Bell Gorge, Mitchell Falls and Emma Gorge. Bell Gorge was pretty easy and you were rewarded by the most sensational swim. The walk to Mitchell Falls isn't that difficult but you certainly have to take your time due to the heat and also there is lots of up and down tracks, climbing over rocks etc and I'd say I drank easily 2 litres of water or more and 3 swims along the way. Have to say it was the most spectacular walk I've ever done - despite the 39 degree heat. Of the 20 people on our tour which ranged in age from 50 - 70, half did the Mitchell Falls walk and only 8 did the Emma Gorge walk due to the tour guide's comment. He said that it was easily the most difficult of the three. Having been on the go non-stop for several days before we got to Emma Gorge and was feeling rather exhausted so I opted not to do it. Feedback from the people who went was that it was absolutely amazing and well worth it. So my advice would be to start early in the morning, make sure you do have really good walking shoes that won't get slippery if you walk on wet rocks. Apparently plenty of the walk is in shade which will help. The good thing about this walk is that if you get to a point where it's getting too much you can turn back. On the Mitchell Falls walk that wasn't an option as you walk all the way in and then (in our case get a helicopter out). Make sure you have plenty of water with you as well. I have no doubt you will enjoy the area, for us the trip to the Kimberley was the trip of a lifetime.
