I live in the NT and have often gone to ELQ for holidays. We recently spent a few nights at ELQ and everything was fantastic like always. Although they had just opened for the season the staff were amazing and their excitement about working at ELQ was infectious. The walks, waterholes and scenery was magical. When asked by friends what our favourite part of our Kimberley trip was both myself anf my friend said - relaxing at camp at ELQ looking over the Pentacost River:)

Stayed in the bungalow rooms for 5 nights, the rooms were beautiful. The back balcony overlooked a creek, it was lovely sitting at the back in the evening hearing the water bubbling away. Such a special place to stay, Kimberley locals should feel so lucky they have relatively easy access to El Q.
El Q was our last destination after doing the Gibb River for 12 days so this was definitely a lovely place to relax. Food from the restaurant was delicious, so fresh & tasty. Beer from the bar was always cold. Staff are very friendly especially the 2 ladies from restaurant. Had live music on Sunday might by local musician Chris Matthews. ElQ staff were having a great time having dancing offs hahaha was a brilliant night (they were rostered off). We did the 30 minute helicopter right at $300 p/person which was amazing, the pilot (Glenn) was so friendly & informative. You could really tell he loved his job which showed during the flight. We took our 4WD to the many look outs so that was great to get out on our own.
Overall, its a beautiful place to stay, it is on the pricey side so it may not be for everyone but if you can give it a go once you won't be dissapointed.

Room Tip: No phone reception so buy phone cards from the bar Fruitbat bungalow overlooks the creek

We love visiting ELQ, usually several times a year. We stayed in a private bush camp and they are awesome! Was a bit hot at night so on the 3rd one we switched to a room for the aircon, was lovely after 2 nights of sweat!! It was a bit late for camping mid October but was fun.
Staff are friendly and helpful.
Had a couple of dinners and a lunch at the steakhouse, nice.
The only complaint is the pies and sausage rolls at the station store, they look nice but are terrible. Even the kids hated the sausage rolls with sauce and they will normally eat anything with tomato sauce!! I tried them and not very good. All very bland unfortunately. Once I tasted it I remembered that I had one earlier in the year and said I would never have another, unfortunately I forgot!!!!! Oh well.
Thanks for another great stay!! Moonshine was brilliant!!!

Stayed: October 2013

Dear Tim,

Thank you for your ongoing support of both The Station and Emma Gorge. We really appreciate you sharing your views on the great experiences to be had in the East Kimberley. Having stayed in several styles of El Questro’s accommodation, you are an asset to our marketing team!!! Whilst it may be a little bit warmer in October, you certainly would have benefitted from having less people to share the park and attractions with. I take on board your comments about the sausage rolls, we will certainly investigate our supplier options.

We look forward to next season and another year of welcoming the people of Wyndham.

Warm regards,
Lori Litwack

After our first visit to ElQ several years ago, we knew we had to return. Our second visit did not disappoint. There is so much to do on this property and the natural beauty is awesome. It is a photographer's paradise. Can't speak highly enough about the raw, unspoilt beauty of this place. We had our own 4WD, so could travel around the property as we pleased, but guided tours are also on offer for those who don't have a 4WD or don't wish to drive themselves. We stayed in the air-conditioned bungalows, which were very clean and comfortable, and included a back deck overlooking a tributary of the river. There are several standards of accommodation, including private campsites, so all tastes are catered for. It is obvious that the staff care for the land and the wildlife. Well worth a visit.

Dear Kimberley77,
Thank you so much for posting such a favourable review of The Station Bungalows, you have captured the essence of the property in a few words. It is wonderful to see that this was a return visit to El Questro. It is certainly the type of place that needs more than 1 visit given how much there is to do here. I guess that is why some of the staff have been her for more than 10 years!!!
We hope to see you again for another holiday.
Warm regards,
Lori Litwack

Some of the reviews of El Questro Station don’t take account of its location. This is a REMOTE AREA and one has to accept the limitations. We hope these comments about the bungalows will be useful - particularly for visitors renting a vehicle.
1. The bungalows are superbly located on the Pentecost River. They’re spacious and have aircon. Facilities include a fridge, kettle and iron, shower and toilet.
2. There are no cooking facilities in the bungalows or anywhere else at El Questro station. So be prepared. We brought along a toaster ($22 at Kununurra).
3. The restaurant is great if you want to eat all your meals at a restaurant. The café has snacks of modest quality.
4. The Kimberley is HOT in the daytime in winter. (Summer is the wet season and you probably won’t be at El Questro then.) Do your activities early in the morning or after 3.30 pm.
5. If you are self-driving and something goes wrong with the vehicle, El Questro is 1.25 hours from the nearest centre (Kununurra) and there’s no mobile (= cell phone) coverage.
6. You must be prepared to drive through two river crossings to get there. Smaller 4wds (SUVs) will cope under normal conditions during the dry season.
The staff at El Questro are, generally, excellent - but not always knowledgeable about walks.
And a note of caution. We reserved a bungalow but an error occurred in our reservation. We arrived expecting refrigeration, a roof and a bathroom. We had to sleep the first night in a tent – for which we were not prepared (no torches, no refrigerated storage, etc). Leanne and her team did everything possible to mitigate and we greatly appreciated their efforts. But what if we’d been elderly or incapacitated?
So our advice is to double-check your booking or have a contingency plan to survive tent accommodation.
