The Arkaba Walk

Exploring 60,000 acres of privately-owned and carefully protected outback.

The Arkaba Walk goes beyond a Wild Bush Luxury experience in an iconic outback Australian setting. It’s not only witnessing an environment in recovery, by joining this fully hosted all-inclusive four-day walk, you’re actively participating in its revival. 600 million years of geological history echo through the stratified layers of Wilpena Pound and the Elder Range, providing spectacular backdrops throughout the walk. You’re treading land where Adnyamathanha people, the first Australians of the Flinders Ranges have walked for tens of thousands of years. A place where sandstone bluffs mingle with ancient creek beds dotted with monumental River Red Gums watching your every move.

You’ll see and hear the results of active conservation as you walk through the landscape and meet the wildlife in the company of top notch field guides. You’ll be amazed at the gourmet meals being served out of remote walking camps before retiring to your signature swag bed and the chance to sleep under billions of stars! Dining around the old wool classing table with the ever-changing light and sounds of the bush all around is a special way to enjoy your final evening at the Arkaba Homestead, a Luxury Lodges of Australia property. While everyone loves to have a comfortable bed and great food, it is the time spent with people on the ground that leaves a lasting impact. Of course, a really good glass of wine at the end of the day always helps! The true value of a Wild Bush Luxury experience on the Arkaba Walk is the vastness of space, the feeling of exclusivity and the ability to connect with nature
