The 540 million-year-old landscape of the Flinders Ranges tells the story of geological evolution, Aboriginal history and remote European settlers. Arkaba Station counts almost 25,000 hectares of South Australian outback as its own, introducing children to the environment with treasure hunts, cooking demonstrations and animal encounters. Experiences vary to best showcase the region, but meals are chef prepared and accommodation ranges from magical star beds to the 1850 Arkaba Homestead. A scenic flight provides an aerial view of Wilpena Pound and the massive salt pans of Lake Torrens.
