the Arkaba walk 1

A five night outback walking journey exploring an ever-changing wilderness on foot followed by a luxury vineyard retreat in the world-renowned Barossa wine region and one of Australia’s finest dining experiences.

The Arkaba Walk is redefining the classic Aussie bush walk, adding luxury touches to a four day private hike in the Flinders Ranges.  Framed by the rugged wall of Wilpena Pound and the red-hued ridges of the Elder Range, Arkaba is one of Australia’s most accessible outback experiences.
