Occupying 60,000 isolated acres within Australia’s rugged Flinders Ranges, Arkaba is a quintessential 1850s Australian homestead. Housing only 10 guests, you won’t have to share this pristine wilderness with many others. Open-top jeep safaris and guided walks with expert field guides offer encounters with iconic Australian wildlife – including emus, red kangaroos, yellow-footed rock-wallabies and wedge-tailed eagles – whilst mountain biking and visits to Aboriginal rock art sites can also be arranged. As well as air safaris and helicopter rides for the truly adventurous.

When not exploring the mountainous landscape beyond, you can retreat to the comfort of your traditionally furnished bedroom where a shady veranda provides the perfect kick-back spot. The library also offers plush leather armchairs to sink into and a stone fireplace to unwind around, whilst dining takes place on the terrace with panoramic views over the Elder Range. Guests are also invited take part in the property’s conservation efforts, which focus on protecting the native wildlife from feral animals.
