My partner (now fiancee) organised a trip to Arkaba station over the Easter weekend. The homestead can only be described as understated elegance. It was very comfortable and relaxing. Richard was an amazing chef - he is passionate about food and uses local ingredients from the neighbouring areas to create masterpieces. It was much appreciated as my partner is lactose intolerant but we still enjoyed home made risottos, quiche and even lactose free ice-cream for dessert. Kat and Brendon were very knowledgeable on everything and were superb in organising a very special moment for my partner's proposal. It felt as though we were the only ones there in the midst of the Flinders Ranges and the moment was absolutely magnificent. We were both fascinated to hear Kat's detailed and logical explanations of their conservation direction and have learnt so much from the couple of days we spent there. We would love to go back to enjoy this gem in the Flinders Ranges. The staff were so generous and friendly - this is one special place in SA.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Arkaba is a 60,000 acre private conservancy set in the heart of the Flinders Ranges. With just five rooms the Arkaba homestead is an oasis of comfort and style amidst a harsh and rugged landscape, where guests enjoy a taste of classic Australian country hospitality. The Flinders Ranges is in a class of its own for taking in the sheer size and scale of Australia's outback offering the chance to immerse oneself in 600 million years of geological history. Arkaba's conservation management program has seen a transformation in bird and mammal species on the property and offers guests a unique insight to the challenges that Australia faces in saving its unique and diverse natural heritage. Activities include bush walking, photography, safari drives, visiting ancient Aboriginal sites, or just soaking up the sights and sounds of the bush. Enjoy bush picnics underneath magnificent River Red gums, track native wildlife, learn the stories of early European settlement or take a scenic flight over Wilpena Pound and the salt pans of Lake Torrens. The real luxury at Arkaba comes in sharing this spectacular conservancy with just a handful of other guests. ... more less
