The Arkaba Walk is redefining the classic Aussie 'bush walk', adding luxury touches to a four-day private hike in the Flinders Ranges. Traversing an ancient landscape and private wildlife conservancy, you'll be immersed in the story of the land.

All chef-prepared meals, beverages, alcohol, snacks and accommodation are included. You will spend two night's camping in deluxe swags on our famous star beds and one night in the 1850s Arkaba Homestead. Each camp has five permanent swag decks with one side open to the views over the countryside. Your bed is a ‘swag’ - the bedding of choice for generations of Australian pioneers, a canvas envelope that is comfy and protects you from the elements. Inside each swag will be an all seasons sleeping bag with liner. Each campsite has two waterless composting toilets and bush showers with spectacular views.

A suitable hydration daypack (with 2.5L water bladder) will also be provided, with plenty of room for your lunch, camera and items of a personal nature. A support vehicle will transfer the remainder of your luggage between camps each day, leaving you free to explore Arkaba with only what you need or the day.

The Arkaba Walk is a 'moderate to challenging' walk. You will cover between 6 to 15km per day over various terrains; along creeks beds, flat plains and some steep, hilly ground with mountain scrambling over rocky surfaces. You can be walking for up to 7 hours per day with plenty of ascents and descents. Whilst you do not need previous trekking experience a good level of fitness is required.
