Situated in the heart of the Flinders Ranges, Arkaba is a luxurious 5 bedroom homestead that offers its guests a truly memorable outback experience. Set on 60,000 acres of private conservancy, this historic homestead which dates back to the 1850’s boasts spectacular views of Wilpena Pound as well as some of Australia’s most breath-taking outback scenery. 

Its seclusion, comfort and fantastic location makes this Wild Bush Luxury retreat perfect for an outback escape for two or a short getaway for wildlife and bird lovers. In a location surrounded by Australia’s unique natural flora and fauna, guests are spoilt for choice - with an extensive range of adventure activities to keep you entertained. 

Arkaba offers some of the best bushwalking in the country as well as open top safari drives and scenic flights. There is also the opportunity to join a knowledgeable guide on a walking safari where you can traverse the ancient Ikara-Flinders Ranges in search of the million year old fossils and its diverse wildlife, including the country’s most endangered macropod, the yellow-footed Rock Wallaby. 

For a more relaxing day, you can spend time exploring the extensive and peaceful grounds of the homestead and its pioneering history. Designed to pay homage to its rich pastoral heritage, the homestead features a rustic-chic style adorned with heritage furniture pieces and a very close attention to every fine detail. A comfortable library provides a quiet place for reading while the large stone fireplace offers some warmth and seclusion. A gourmet dinner is hosted on the terrace which overlooks the stunning ranges and the swimming pool - offering a refreshing retreat from the heat of the summer. A firepit in the corner of the garden provides a great spot to retire to after dinner with a glass of wine or port to watch the stars appear over this ancient landscape. 

All five of the homestead’s rooms are spacious and elegantly furnished with modern home comforts and stunning views of the surrounding ranges. Each suite has a character of its own and has been named after early settlers, explorers or property owners. Four bedrooms are located in the historic homestead while the Coachman’s Cottage in the corner of the garden provides a more private and intimate fifth guest room. 

All suites have been designed with the homestead’s heritage in mind and come complete with shaded verandah and luxurious ensuite bathroom. With no telephones, televisions, minibars or the typical features of a hotel room to distract, the focus is on the experience and one of the most beautiful properties in Australia.

Note: Arkaba Homestead welcomes children aged eight years and over. Please note that there is no mobile phone coverage available in this part of Australia.
