* The Arkaba Walk costs $2,150 per person. The rate above reflects a booking for two people *

The Arkaba Walk runs from 17 March to 16 October 2016 with departures every Thursday (and every Sunday during May, August, September and October).

Traversing the ancient Flinders Ranges and the private Arkaba Conservancy in outback South Australia, The Arkaba Walk is an experience that immerses you in the story of the land. 600-million years of geological history echo through the stratified layers of Wilpena Pound and the Elder Range, providing spectacular backdrops throughout the walk, while craggy sandstone bluffs and dry creek beds lined with River Red Gums offer a quintessential outback landscape. 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 eke a living from the harsh but beautiful country. Arkaba’s own conservation management programs offer interested guests the chance to learn of the challenges that Australia faces in conserving its unique and diverse environment.

Day one: Wilpena Pound Resort to Black’s Gap Camp
Set off on foot through the basin of Wilpena Pound before walking onto Arkaba’s private wildlife conservancy from the edge of the Pound and descending to Black Gaps Camp.

Day two: Black’s Gap Camp to Elder Camp
A challenging hike through creeks and broken country approaching the foothills of the Elder Range to Elder Camp.

Day three: Elder Camp to Arkaba Homestead
Walk across varying terrain through Mallee and cypress pine forests before ascending the beautiful Red Range for views across the neighbouring ranges and crossing Arkaba Creek to arrive at Arkaba’s heritage homestead.

Day four: Arkaba Homestead to Arkaba Woolshed
Relax in the library with a book, take an optional scenic flight over Wilpena Pound or walk along the creek to the historic Arkaba Woolshed.
