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 7am to noon, and exclusively to Homestead guests in the afternoons. It is a 1.5 kilometre return walk from the carpark. 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.
