The Arkaba Walk, South Australia

Outback South Australia

Traversing the ancient Flinders Ranges and the private Arkaba Conservancy in outback South Australia, The Arkaba Walk is an experience that immerses you in the story of the land.

The Arkaba Walk takes you on a journey of 600-million years of geological history. This is a four-day walk for groups of up to ten walkers. Departing from Wilpena Pound on day one, you’ll be escorted by Arkaba’s field guides whose passion is in opening up the secrets of the country and reconnecting you with the bush.

This amazing story echoes through the stratified layers of Wilpena Pound and the Elder Range, providing spectacular backdrops throughout the walk. Craggy sandstone bluffs and dry creek beds lined with River Red Gums offer a quintessential outback landscape.

Arkaba’s own conservation management programs offer interested guests the chance to learn of the challenges that Australia faces in conserving its unique and diverse environment. Large numbers of Red and Western Grey kangaroos, wallaroos and emus are regular sightings along the walk, and the country is littered with the stories, and often heroic failures, of early pioneers who tried to make a living from the harsh but beautiful country.
