We visited Arkaba Station in January, 2014. Despite it being very hot and not the high season for Arkaba, it was one of the highlights of our trip to Australia. Fantastic property. Hilly. Scenic vistas. Great wildlife - kangaroos, emus, birds. Excellent accomodations. Great meals served by the resident chef. After a day, he ascertained our taste and served our favorite drinks and food without our asking. Kat and Brendon, the resident managers and tour guides, could not have been more gracious, knowledgeable, and enjoyable. We went on range rides in the Landcruiser over fantastic terrain. Sunrise breakfasts, sunset cocktails and appetizers while touring the outback. Not another person in sight. Kat was so informative, it seemed as though she must have PhD's in geology, biology, botany, zoology, history and several other disciplines. Arkaba Station is a special place.

Arkaba's conservation management program has seen a transformation in bird and mammal species on the property and offers guests a unique insight to the challenges that Australia faces in saving its unique and diverse natural heritage. Activities include bush walking, photography, safari drives, visiting ancient Aboriginal sites, or just soaking up the sights and sounds of the bush. Enjoy bush picnics underneath magnificent River Red gums, track native wildlife, learn the stories of early European settlement or take a scenic flight over Wilpena Pound and the salt pans of Lake Torrens.
