Dating back to the 1850s, Arkaba Homestead's five en-suite bedrooms have been tastefully restored in tune with the property's pioneering history. With Wild Bush Luxury's understated Australian style, the homestead pays homage to this rich pastoral and exploration heritage in a style that is both rustically chic and utterly exclusive.
A comfortable library with deep leather armchairs and a large stone fireplace provides some seclusion for enjoying a quiet drink and a good book, while dinner is hosted on the terrace overlooking the ranges. In the heat of summer, the swimming pool overlooking the Arkaba Creek is a welcome retreat after a morning or day spent exploring the bush.
As your hosts, we will ensure a friendly and personal level of attention that is typically "down to earth" but does not lose sight of the attention to the small details that are so important in delivering an outstanding outback experience. The real luxury at Arkaba comes in sharing this spectacular conservancy with just a handful of other guests.
Arkaba's wildlife is prolific, with Australia's three largest macropods (red kangaroo, western grey kangaroo and common wallaroo) all regular sightings. The near threatened yellow-footed rock wallaby has also returned to Arkaba's range since the introduction of active conservation programs.
For those keen to learn more of the challenges Australia faces in saving its diversity of wildlife, join one of Arkaba's field guides one evening to track a radio collared feral cat or set up the trip cameras that monitor key sites across the property. Wildlife conservation on the property is an ever-changing and ever-improving endeavour which has immensely enhanced the wilderness experience.
