Immerse yourself in one of Australia's great walks and discover ancient outback landscapes, abundant wildlife and the chance to sleep under the stars. A 3 night, 4 day Arkaba Walk ex Adelaide now includes a one way flight from Adelaide to the Flinders Ranges with your return trip by scenic road transfer through the Clare Valley wine country.
The Arkaba Walk operates from 21 March - 04 October with departures every Thursday throughout the season, with additional departures on a Friday during April, May, August and October. Walks operate with a minimum of two and a maximum of 10 guests.
Your four-day Arkaba Walk ex Adelaide package includes all meals, drinks, a support vehicle taking your luggage between camps, two nights camping in deluxe swags on one of our famous star beds, one night in the 1850s Arkaba Homestead plus your transfers from Adelaide. You'll fly one way from Adelaide - Hawker while returning by scenic road transfer with lunch in the picturesque Clare Valley.
Your Arkaba Walk is inclusive of two night's camping in deluxe swags on one of our signature star beds and one night in the 1850s Arkaba Homestead, in a Homestead Guestroom with ensuite.
Located in some of the most scenic spots on Arkaba, our camp sites have been built to blend as seamlessly as possible with the surrounding vegetation, while providing guests with stunning views from every corner of the camp. In tune with our sustainability principles, each camp has two waterless composting toilets strategically located to enjoy the best of the views, whilst remaining discrete. Walkers will enjoy two 'bush showers' - essentially buckets that our camp assistants will fill by hand with water warmed over the fire, ready as you walk into camp, and equipped with taps to regulate the flow. Some special Wild Bush Luxury touches ensure these showers will be a feature of your trip!
One of five timber swag decks will be bed for the night. Each are slightly elevated with a half metre corrugated iron screen around three sides to give privacy, the fourth side is left open to the views over the countryside, while above you is the night sky and a canopy of stars. Each deck has been fitted with a sheltered area towards the back, where your swag beds will be placed in the event of wind or rain. Your bed itself is a 'swag' - the bedding of choice for generations of Australian pioneers, a canvas envelope that is comfortable and waterproof, protecting you from the elements. Inside each swag will be an all seasons sleeping bag with liner.
The final night is spent in the comfort of the Arkaba homestead, a member of Luxury Lodges of Australia. Arkaba's rustically chic 150 year old homestead is an exclusive outback experience. As the layout of the original homestead has been retained, each room has a character of its own and has been named after early settlers, explorers or property owners. Each of the five guestrooms has its own ensuite bathroom and opens out on a shaped verandah with private views of the surrounding ranges. The decor has been hand fashioned by wildlife artist, Rosie Woodford-Ganf, think bedheads fashioned from recycled fence posts and fleeces, curtains tied back by gumnut tassles and lights are perched on explorers' tripod theodolites.
