Arkaba

Recognised as one of the most beautiful outback properties in the country, Arkaba is also a 60,000 acre private wildlife conservancy. Its craggy sandstone bluffs and dry creek beds lined with River Red Gums create a quintessential Australian scene while the 1850’s homestead has been tastefully restored in line with property’s pioneering story, and in tune with Wild Bush Luxury’s understated yet cleverly up-cycled Australian style. Hosted dinners and sharing stories with field guides provide an atmosphere more akin to staying with friends in the country, or a private safari lodge than a typical luxury hotel.
