Arkaroola Wilderness Area

Located 600 kilometres north of Adelaide, Arkaroola stretches across rugged country near the Northern end of the Flinders Ranges. Arkaroola features craggy mountains; towering granite peaks, magnificent gorges and waterholes. Arkaroola was once a sheep station and is today home to over 160 species of birds, the shy and endangered Yellow-Footed Rock Wallaby and many indigenous plants, including the Sturt Desert Pea, South Australia’s floral emblem. Arkaroola in your itinerary will add some of the most breathtaking scenery you are ever likely to see anywhere across the world. Within this very special environment the Arkaroola Wilderness Sanctuary holiday retreat has been created, which offers good facilites, a cosy bar/restaurant, small supermarket and service station. The Gammon Ranges provides visitors with opportunities to enjoy remote area camping, interesting scenic drives, bushwalking, bird watching and the chance to explore relics of pastoral as well as criminal history. The area is generally accessed via Park Headquarters at Balcanoona, some 100 km east of Copley, although it can also be entered from the Yankaninna Road and Arkaroola.
