Arkaba has made the transformation from an outback sheep station to a private conservancy. With some of the most spectacular landscape in outback Australia, the team at Arkaba blend their passion for conservation with immersing guests in the story of the country: 600 million years of geological history, 24,281 hectares of private wildlife conservancy that you share with just a privileged few others and a wealth of wildlife.
The resident chef creates bush inspired cuisine and the homestead has a cellar of premium South Australian wines. Other facilities include a reference library with deep leather armchairs, a large stone fireplace and an open bar. Arkaba's topography offers some of outback Australia's most stunning scenery, ranging from knife edge ridge tops through cypress pine country to red gum lined creek beds. Expert field guides pull together the incredible geological history, wildlife and pastoral heritage of this region with visits to some of the secret spots on the property and a chance to take in the sights and sounds of the bush.
