Getting There

This walking tour commences at the Arkaba Homestead. As the property is remote, it is essential that you are in the local area the night before. It’s possible to arrange flights to Port Augusta with a subsequent road transfer to Arkaba, or simply a private door-to-door transfer from Adelaide/Adelaide airport to the homestead.
