The Arkaba Walk and Scenic Rim Trail have commenced their 2017 walking seasons. With the Arkaba Walk proudly in their seventh year, and the Scenic Rim Trail boasting some new specialist team members, it’s going to be another fantastic season on these trails.
The Arkaba Walk, Flinders Ranges, South Australia
The 23rd of March began the seventh season for the Arkaba Walk. With field guides dusting off their walking boots, signature star beds freshly dressed, delicious new season menus crafted and the bar well replenished with new local wines, the team at Wild Bush Luxury are all ready to ensure you have the best experience exploring the ancient lands of South Australia. And with Wild Bush Luxury now managing your transfers from Adelaide, you’ll be treated one way by air and the other by road, taking in the Clare Valley wine country, another of South Australia’s natural beauty’s.
So with departures occurring at least once a week until 15 October 2017, now is the time to plan your extraordinary outback experience…
The Scenic Rim Trail, Main Range National Park, Queensland
Further north in Queensland’s Main Range National Park they’re also dusting off their hiking boots, as team at the Scenic Rim Trail start to embark on their 4 day guided hikes for 2017.
The team has had some changes recently with a new General Manager, Mr. Craig Arlidge. Craig previously held the position of General Manager, with his wife Gabrielle, at Moyyan House by the Sea Hotel, in Vanuatu. With a wealth of knowledge in managing lodges, tours and experiences, both Craig and Gabrielle bring a wealth of experience to the Scenic Rim Trail.
The Scenic Rim team have also appointed Mr. Harley England, one of their lead guides to the position of Chief Ecologist. Harley will be leading projects throughout the season to identify and document the local wildlife that inhabit the Spicers Peak Nature Refuge where the majority of our trails are located. This will provide invaluable data and knowledge about our local wildlife, that will be shared with walkers during the hike.
With the introduction of new departure dates for the four-day Scenic Rim Trail on both Saturdays and Tuesdays, there is now even more flexibility when organising your escape. The Scenic Rim Trail is open now until 28 November 2017.
