Flinders RangesSouth Australia, Australia
Towering ancient cliffs and deep craters border dusty red roads and provide a little Outback Australia. Kati Thanda–Lake Eyre is spectacular from the air or you can drive along the Aboriginal Dreaming Trail. Marvel at Wilpena Pound, a large amphitheatre created through erosion over millions of years and be surrounded by ancient mountain ranges, spectacular gorges and sheltered creeks.
The Flinders Ranges are approximately 200 kilometres north of Adelaide or a five hour drive making it one of the most accessible outback experiences in Australia.
Arkaba in the Flinders Ranges is part of luxury lodges of Australia set on a 259 hectare property. A one-time sheep farming homestead set in 59,305 acres. The 1851-built farmhouse, with its pressed metal ceilings, cool flagstone floors beneath shady verandahs, small library, open fires for frosty winters and sisal-covered bedroom floors sleeps just 10 guests.
The Arkaba Walk is a unique 4 day adventure with passionate guides and some indulgent creature comforts to create an immersive bush experience. You will visit secret spots on the 60,000 acre private wildlife conservancy and recount stories of the people, indigenous inhabitants, explorers and settlers, who have created the human history of this area. Camps are set up in spectacular locations on the property and are designed to expose you to the surrounding country.
