Ark­aba has se­ri­ous swag

Vacations & Travel - - Travel Talk -

The rugged and wild Flin­ders Ranges in South Aus­tralia is a spec­tac­u­lar land­scape far from the city lights. A won­der­ful way to ex­pe­ri­ence the Flin­ders is to stay at Ark­aba, a Wild Bush Lux­ury prop­erty and one of the most ex­clu­sive stays in Aus­tralia. Just ten guests at a time share this re­mote 24,000-hectare pri­vate wildlife con­ser­vancy that started life as a sheep sta­tion in the 1850s. The five-room homestead has been beau­ti­fully re­stored, and guests can re­lax in the deep leather arm­chairs by the large stone fire­place in the li­brary or by the pool. Or, one night, choose to sleep in a swag un­der the stars. You can also head out and ex­plore with the field guides, who will take you bush­walk­ing, on 4WD sa­faris and vis­it­ing an­cient Abo­rig­i­nal sites, and you can take a scenic flight of Wilpena Pound. ark­abas­ta­
