The Arkaba Walk


Australia’s environment is one of the most specialized and diverse on earth and the best way to appreciate its subtleties is on foot. With expert guides to interpret the geology, flora and fauna of the Flinders Ranges, the three-day walking safari brings a few luxury touches to an immersive bush experience.

Traversing Wilpena Pound and 60,000 acres of Arkaba’s private wildlife conservancy, the walk is an opportunity to share with just a privileged few one of Australia’s most spectacular outback landscapes.

From dry creek beds and isolated waterholes, lined with 1,000 year old river red gums to craggy ridge lines and rolling hills covered in cypress pines to the ancient ramparts of Wilpena Pound, this is some of the most stunning walking country in Australia. Arkaba’s guides will share their passion for the conservation of Australia’s natural and cultural heritage. They will also show you the secret spots on the property and recount stories of the indigenous inhabitants, explorers and settlers, who have created the area’s human history.

Two nights are spent at signature swag camps, Elder Camp, which are in spectacular locations on the property with the third night at the beautifully restored 1850s Arkaba homestead.
