ARK­ABA STA­TION

Five Star Kids - - WWW. FIVESTARKIDSMAGAZINE.COM. AU -

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.

Dine around an old wool-class­ing ta­ble on the out­door ter­race, sam­pling South Aus­tralian wines.
