The Maria Island Walk and Arkaba Walk are excited to announce they are two of the founding members of the Australian Wildlife Collection; a new organisation showcasing immersive wildlife encounters across natural habitats.

Through the Australian Wildlife Collection, tourists will be able to build travel itineraries that include seasonal wildlife events and maximise their interactions with Australia’s diverse environment.
Often described as Tasmania’s Noah’s Ark, Maria Island is renowned as one of Australia’s leading destinations to see wombats, Tasmanian Devils, Kangaroos and bird life, including the rare forty-spotted pardalote. The Maria Island Walk hikes through isolated areas of the island over 4 days and 3 nights, offering guests rare and up close interactions with Australian native animals. In addition to these encounters, guests are treated to candlelit three-course meals, comprising fresh local produce and overnight stays in eco-lux wilderness campsites a stone’s throw from sandy white beaches, providing the perfect place to retire at the end of days full of new experiences.

The Australian Wildlife Collection have also started assembling a portfolio of guest programs that assist in the regeneration of local ecosystems.
The Arkaba Walk, in South Australia’s Flinders Ranges, offers a conservation management program that provides interested guests the chance to learn of the challenges that Australia faces in conserving its unique and diverse environment. The region is also home to Red and Western Grey kangaroos, wallaroos and emus, which guests encounter as they hike through the quintessential outback landscape of Wilpena Pound and the Elder Range. Evenings are then spent around the campfire, indulging in a three-course camp dinner, before retiring to your deluxe swag for a well-earned rest and the sounds of the bush all around you.
Along with the two Great Walks of Australia, the Australian Wildlife Collection includes an array of Australia’s landscapes, from coral reefs, coastal and alpine eucalypt woodlands, wet and dry rainforests, wetlands to desert sandplains.
