Bush Culture

El Questro Homestead guests can enjoy a morning learning about bush culture, including traditional Aboriginal remedies, medicines and sustenance used by the Balanggarra people in the north and the Nyaliga in the south - for over millennia. This is an opportunity to learn about the fascinating Aboriginal and European history in The Kimberley and discover how together with the Traditional Owners of El Questro, the Rangers consider themselves custodians of this precious swathe of truly wild country. 

El Questro is a member of the Savannah Guides network of professional tour guides and tourism operators. The organisation fosters ecologically interpretive tourism and members must demonstrate a commitment to conservation values and meet strict standards of operation. Savannah Guides are dedicated to passing on their extensive knowledge of the Kimberley to El Questro Homestead guests.
