Arkaroola Resort and Wilderness Sanctuary, Arkaroola

Operated by the Sprigg family, Arkaroola is located 600km north of Adelaide and 130km east of Leigh Creek.

It features rugged mountains, towering granite peaks, magnificent gorges and mysterious waterholes. Arkaroola is home to over 160 species of birds and the shy and endangered Yellow-footed Rock-wallaby.

Arkaroola is a mecca for bushwalkers and four wheel drivers. The spectacular Advanced Ecotourism accredited rugged 4WD Ridgetop Tour is world famous; journey to the depths of ancient seabeds and across razor-back ridges and peaks of the Flinders Ranges most rugged mountains to the magnificent climax at Sillers Lookout.

Being the first Flinders Ranges tourist organisation to achieve the coveted Advanced Ecotourism accreditation, and with now a total of eleven such products available for you to enjoy, Arkaroola is truly unique. Our third successive S.A. Tourism Award win for Ecotourism (November 2007), saw Arkaroola awarded the coveted Hall of Fame, and is undoubtedly South Australia's premier ecotourism destination.
