Upgraded El Questro lands award nomination

1998 WA Tourism Awards winner El Questro has been nominated for the Sir David Brand Award for Tourism in this year’s awards.

The venue is also nominated for the Luxury Accommodation and Unique Accommodation categories.

More than one million acres in size, the wilderness park extends from Broome in the South West to Kunun-urra and Wyndham near the Northern Territory border.

General manager Michael Haberland said El Questro’s success largely lay in the natural splendour of the region.

“We’re fortunate to be in a fairly unique part of Australia,” he said.

“There are some fantastic barramundi fishing spots, gorges, natural thermal springs, horseriding and boat trips down the Chamberlain River, over which El Questro is cantilevered.”

Operating since 1991, El Questro features a homestead (contender for Luxury Accommodation award) which has been frequented by many international VIPs.

“They would make up 60 per cent of our clientele but I won’t drop any names so as to protect their privacy,” Mr Haberland said.

El Questro has been recently upgraded to include eight new ‘unique accommodation’ cabins, eight family cabins with ensuites, eight bungalows and nine ensuites to existing cabins.
