A soothing soak awaits you at Zebedee Springs when you make the short walk through the pre-historic forest of Livistona and pandanus palms to a series of inviting thermal pools and waterfalls. It’s one of many extraordinary rewards to be found when exploring the one-million-acre wilderness of El Questro.

To reach the springs and El Questro, you can drive the legendary Gibb River Road four-wheel drive trail from Kununurra, book a transfer to the park by road or air from Kununurra, or join a guided tour. Access is between May and September (dry season).

Zebedee Springs is open to general visitors from 7 am to noon, and exclusively to Homestead guests in the afternoons. It is a 1.5-kilometre return walk from the car park. Alternatively, a full or half-day guided tour will combine a relaxing dip in the thermal pools with a visit to some of the wilderness park’s other natural attractions.

Book a luxury suite at the Homestead, a tented cabin at Emma Gorge, or a family room or camping site at the station and you can end your day under an El Questro wilderness night sky filled with stars.
