If you love walking in nature and the sound of an outback adventure but swag camping under the stars isn’t your idea of fun, we have a lodge-based walking experience just for you.
Our lodge-based Arkaba Walk experience includes immersive day trips on foot based from the Arkaba Homestead. Allowing you the option of relaxed and comfortable exploration of the Flinders Ranges. Long piping-hot showers, air conditioning, and a bottomless South Australian wine cellar come with the territory.
Below is a sample itinerary. Walk days may change order.
DAY 1 – ARKABA HOMESTEAD
Make your way to Arkaba Homestead from 2.30pm for check-in to your Homestead Guestroom. There will be time to freshen up before your guided lay of the land safari experience.
DAY 2 – ARKABA CREEK 13-15KM
Explore Arkaba Creek on foot and immerse yourself in ancient creek lines that carve their way through Arkaba’s private wilderness alive with glorious diversity.
DAY 3 – THE STORY OF ARKABA 13-15KM
Stretch out in one of the world’s oldest landscapes, learn about Arkaba’s 500-million-year journey and how we are protecting and allowing natural processes to reassert themselves in this country.
DAY 4 – BUNYEROO GORGE 10-12KM
Walk through geological millennia of history while discovering Bunyeroo Gorge, keeping your eyes peeled for the beautifully decorated and near-threatened Yellow-footed Rock-wallaby.
DAY 5 – ARKABA AT LEISURE
Morning at leisure to relax in the library or by the pool with a book, take an optional scenic flight over the ancient ramparts of Wilpena Pound or perhaps retreat into nature from Arkaba’s wildlife viewing hide.
