The Boab

A stay at the Homestead would be incomplete without heading out into its surrounding outback to explore the extraordinary beauty of this unique part of the world. El Questro is awash with more than 700,000 acres of rugged ranges, towering gorges, crystal clear waters, breathtaking sunsets and, of course, the ancient Boab tree and it’s all there on the Homestead’s doorstep.

The boab is only found in the Western Australia Kimberley region.  Some boab trees are 1500 years old and older. Boab trees flower and fruit in the wet season, the pretty flowers are big, white, with a pinkish hue, intricate and fragrant. The boabs turn from green trees to their iconic structures then back again to first flower in October meaning the rains are near.
