Ikara-Flinders Ranges and Arkaba Nature Conservancy, South Australia
Traversing the ancient Ikara-Flinders Ranges and the private Arkaba Nature Conservancy in South Australia, The Arkaba Walk is an experience that immerses you in the story of the land. Adventure through this 63,000 km former sheep station and immerse yourself in a remarkable conservation story, abundant wildlife and the history of the spectacular outback.
The Arkaba Walk by Wild Bush Luxury takes you on a journey of 600-million years of geological history.
Departing from Wilpena Pound on day one, you’ll be escorted by Arkaba’s field guides whose passion is in opening up the secrets of the country and reconnecting you with the bush.
This amazing story echoes through the stratified layers of Wilpena Pound and the Elder Range, providing spectacular backdrops throughout the walk. Craggy sandstone bluffs and dry creek beds lined with River Red Gums offer a quintessential outback landscape.
Arkaba’s own conservation management programs offer interested guests the chance to learn about protecting, managing and rewilding Australia’s unique and diverse environment.
Large numbers of Red and Western Grey kangaroos, wallaroos and emus are regular sightings along the walk, and the country is littered with the stories, and often heroic failures, of early pioneers who tried to make a living from the harsh but beautiful country.
