Ridgetop Sleepout Tour, Arkaroola

Explore Arkaroola: The Archive of Earth

Dare to venture deeper into South Australia and be rewarded with a landscape unlike any other on Earth. Imagine the craggy mountain peaks of the European Alps, dusted with ochre red dirt instead of snow. Mountains that emit an orange glow as tangible as firelight when the sun rises and sets. With a geological history that dates back almost two billion years, the scenery that makes up Arkaroola Wilderness Sanctuary is so rare that it has become a mecca for geologists, astronomers, mountaineers, wanderers and more. Named an official International Dark Sky Sanctuary in 2023, Arkaroola's land and skies tell a tale of geological, astronomical and human history.
