Flinders Ranges


‘Classic Luxury Lodge of Australia, Magnificent Surroundings’

Placing you at the heart of a magnificent natural South Australian landscape at the foot of the Elder Range, Arkaba is both a luxury lodge and a 60,000 acre wildlife conservancy. The homestead is a classic Flinders building with thick walls of stone and shaded verandas dating back to 1851 and is truly intimate with just five rooms, each featuring an en-suite bathroom and veranda access. There’s plenty of relaxing to enjoy by the pool or out in nature but the focus here is also on the social experience (there are no televisions, telephones or minibars) so whether over a meal, on a safari or around an evening bonfire, socialising is easy at Arkaba.

In Our Opinion

‘You’d be hard pressed not to be wowed by your surroundings here at the foot of the Elder Range in the heart of a wildlife wonderland’

Lodge Restaurant
Locally sourced food is at the heart of the fine Australian cuisine served here. The addition of a few native elements lends a uniqueness to the dishes. An old wool classing table on the outdoor terrace is the setting for many of the meals here and due to the informal nature of Arkaba Station the dining experience here is akin to seeing friends in the country. The wine cellar is full of fine South Australian wines and the bar is completely open so the chef will adapt things to your specific needs.
