Arkaba Homestead, Flinders Ranges, Australia
A remote wilderness location in the heart of the Flinders Ranges in south Australia is home to one of the most picturesque ex-working stations. Arkaba is able to offer a fabulous experience of life in the outback, whilst staying in luxury.
Accommodating up to ten people, the five double rooms all have en suite bathrooms and verandas, from which you can enjoy the views with a glass of wine and canapés. The warm temperature and the spectacular views make the al fresco dining a real treat, with all meals being prepared by an excellent chef, using fresh local produce.
There is much to see and do during your stay at Arkaba. You can choose to tour the property by 4X4, taking in the local flora and fauna, including kangaroos, galahs and emus. The surrounding Flinders Ranges are great for walking, and their best-known feature, Wilpena Pound, can be viewed from the air with a half-hour flight.
With no telephones, televisions, minibars, or the typical features of a hotel room to distract, the focus is on the experience, and one of the most beautiful properties in Australia.
