Halfway Pool El Questro
El Questro is one of those places in the Kimberley everyone should visit, the diversity of the landscape is amazing, from boulder encrusted gorges to tropical river beads surrounded by huge cliffs. The Downside is it is a long way from anyway, though you can fly in to the resort.
This photograph is of the halfway pool in El Questro Gorge and was taken in July 2010. To give you some idea I walked several km through this river till I came to this rock which is roughly 12 feet tall, climbing up and over it with all my camera gear was not that difficult. But on the return journey climbing down I needed some assistance, the water depth on the other easier side to climb (right side) was just to deep to cross.
The amazing thing about the Kimberley is you can walk nearly all day in the streams waring sandles and unlike the southern states this is a very comfortable experience, I would recommend sandals with toe protection though. On this walk you should always take water despite the abundance of the stuff, you can’t be to careful fresh drinking water is always preferable. I walking stick would not go astray as well.
