At 60,000 acres, Arkaba is a medium sized sheep station, its craggy sandstone bluffs and dry creek beds lined with river red gums providing a quintessential Australian scene, while the geological amphitheatre of Wilpena Pound lies on the northern boundary of the property. Arkaba is also home to an extraordinary variety of birdlife and wildlife.
Dating from 1851, Arkaba Homestead offers a select few guests a taste of classic Australian country hospitality while a few 'Wild Bush Luxury' touches ensure comfort, style and a truly memorable outback experience. There are five guest rooms, each with an ensuite bathroom and air conditioning, as well as supremely comfortable living areas and a pool overlooking Arkaba Creek. An open bar with a selection of beverages is available to guests and the resident chef provides traditional station cuisine infused with native elements.
Activities on the property include wildlife watching, learning of life on a working sheep station, bush walking, four wheel drive safaris, visits to the Flinders Ranges National Park and mountain biking. Scenic flights can be arranged at an additional cost including Wilpena Pound from the air or for further afield a flight to the salt flats of Lake Torrens and Lake Eyre.
