Gem of the Flinders

This is another one of those places I'm going to get bossy about. Leave Arkaroola off your next safari AT YOUR OWN PERIL! We're talking major show pony here.

Arkaroola Wilderness Sanctuary in the northern Flinders Ranges of South Australia is spectacular.

The airstrip is maintained to the highest standards.

Activities are plentiful around here. There are several choices of walking trails all around the property; all are full of scenic and geological highlights.

And you'll feel right at home in Arkaroola's congenial lodge-style bar & restaurant, where you'll catch up with fellow travellers, usually at the end of a day loaded with as much adventure as you can wish for.

And if you'd rather leave the adventuring to those others, then while away some very relaxing time in the souvenir shop, or watching Doug feeding the wallabies at sunset. You'll also get internet access and of course airport transfers.

Your hosts, however, make Arkaroola the very special place it is today. Doug Sprigg and his sister Margaret are second generation owners of Arkaroola, their late father Reg a passionate geologist andĀ household name in the history books of the area.

The Sprigg family is committed to preserving the magnificent environment surrounding their wilderness sanctuary.

Their world famous 4WD Ridgetop Tour showcases the stunning landscape brilliantly.

Do NOT visit Arkaroola without spending an afternoon or morning doing the Ridgetop Tour.

A cuppa in one hand, a lamington in the other, means you've made it to the top of Siller's Lookout, the remarkable destination on your Ridge Top Tour.
