Arkaba in the Flinders Ranges, South Australia

The rugged and wild Flinders Ranges in South Australia is a spectacular landscape far from the city lights.

A wonderful way to experience the Flinders is to stay at Arkaba, a Wild Bush Luxury property and one of the most exclusive stays in Australia.

Just ten guests at a time share this remote 24,000-hectare private wildlife conservancy that started life as a sheep station in the 1850s. The five-room homestead has been beautifully restored, and guests can relax in the deep leather armchairs by the large stone fireplace in the library or by the pool. Or, one night, choose to sleep in a swag under the stars.

You can also head out and explore with the field guides, who will take you bushwalking, on 4WD safaris and visiting ancient Aboriginal sites, and you can take a scenic flight of Wilpena Pound.
