One of the most memorable and enjoyable walks in Australia is the Arkaba Walk. Here you can not only enjoy the remote and beautiful diverse scenery of the Flinders Ranges, you can see rare and unique Australian wildlife in their habitat.
The Flinders Ranges are a spectacular mountain range, the first European to spot this was Matthew Flinders on his circumnavigation of Australia to chart the continent. Many explorers tried to tame this region, many farmers too had since colonial times tried and failed.
The ancient landscape of the the Flinders Ranges, moulded by hundreds of millions of years of geological activity, offer some of Australia’s most stunning outback scenery.
Here are some great ideas for you to try while you’re in the area:
Staying in a heritage homestead, guests enjoy a taste of classic Australian country hospitality while a few ’Wild Bush Luxury’ touches ensure comfort, style and a truly memorable outback experience. With just five guest rooms, each with ensuite bathroom and air conditioning and designed in an early settler/pioneer style, the homestead offers the chance to experience outback Australia in complete exclusivity. Activities are designed to take in the best of the morning and afternoon light, while the heat of the middle of the day is the perfect time to relax by the pool or on the homestead lawns.
Explore the secret spots of the ranges, view the local wildlife from open top safari vehicles, take a scenic flight over Wilpena Pound or an early morning walk up one of the creek beds. Local wildlife includes red and grey kangaroos, euros, Yellow-footed Rock wallabies and emus and the scenery is some of the best in Australia.
