Hidden deep in the South Australian outback, Arkaba Station is a 19th-century sheep ranch turned luxury lodge where “getting away from it all” is an understatement. The Homestead honors its hard-working heritage past with thick stone walls and corrugated roofing - and plenty of modern comforts thrown in. Its five rooms are simple yet elegant, peppered with outback touches like bird books, binoculars, sheep-skin hot water bottles, clawfoot tubs, ostrich egg lamps, and cow hide rugs. All open onto airy verandas with lounge chairs perfectly poised to admire sweeping Flinders views. All-inclusive fine-dining and exceptional Australian wines await after strenuous days of view gazing and emu spotting. Crave more adventure? Arkaba’s walking safaris lead groups of up to eight on four-day 30 mile journeys through the Flinders Rangers National Park - a private wildlife sanctuary spanning 60,000 awe-inspiring acres. By day, indulge in more Aussie wildlife, flora, and rugged landscape than a David Attenborough documentary.. By night, unwind at luxury camps where three-course gourmet meals under stars, hot outdoor showers, plush beds - and your bags - await.
