A new start for El Questro
A new chapter for the El Questro Resort in Western Australia has been flagged by owners G’day Group this week, with more accommodation and new cultural experiences to be created in partnership with Traditional Owners.
The announcement was made in partnership with the Wilinggin Aboriginal Corporation (WAC) and the Western Australian Government, with a deal struck between the parties for G’day Group to lease back part of the 165,000 hectare parcel of El Questro land, which was this week handed back to the Wanjina Wungurr Wilinggin people by the WA Government 120 years after the area was originally established as a cattle station.
To continue operating a tourism business, G’day Group said they would purchase carbon credits from WAC so it could operate the property with net zero emissions, as well as implement more employment options for local Indigenous youth.
The site in the Kimberley was purchased by G’day Group from Delaware North in Feb last year, operating two accommodation experiences, the Homestead resort and the Station, which includes a campground and bungalows.
