Willis's Walkabouts Rather Older Picture Galleries

These are a selection of rather older galleries that have not yet been updated, but why miss out on them completely just because they are not quite as shiny as the new ones?

The Cockburn Range is entirely on El Questro Station and is managed as a private wilderness park. On most of our dry season trips, we do a through walk from north to south, finishing at the Emma Gorge Resort. On the wet season trips, when the northern track is impassable, we do a loop walk out and back from Emma Gorge.

When possible, we fly in by helicopter, enjoy some specatcular views and cut off the least interesting part of the walk.

Some of the walking is relatively flat and easy.
Some of the walking is steeper and more difficult.
There are many beautiful pools and there is always time to stop for a swim.
On most of our walks, there are several places where floating your pack saves you a very steep climb. Most people prefer the floats to the climbs and enjoy the water.
We visit a variety of Aboriginal rock art sites on all trips.
It's not all hard work. There is always time to stop and enjoy a view and to rest during our long lunch breaks.
We enjoy a variety of camp sites and see a variety of wildlife. The frogs in the photo at right below are only 1-2 cm long. If you sit still, they may jump onto your legs in search of flies.
The difference between the wet and dry seasons is dramatic. The two photos below were taken on the same creek, less than a kilometre apart. The first was taken in February, the second in September.
The views are among the most spectacular in the Kimberley. Look at the last two photos and imagine yourself there. If that appeals to you, then consider one of our Cockburn trips.
There is far more to see than these few photos can show. Why not join us and experience the best that the Cockburn Range has to offer.
