Each of Arkaba’s 5 bedrooms open out onto a shaded verandah with individual views of the surrounding ranges. In early morning, the sight from the breakfast table as the rugged peaks of the Elder range are set alight by the morning sun provides a teaser for what the rest of the property has in store.
With décor by wildlife artist, Rosie Woodford-Ganf, - think bedheads fashioned from recycled fence posts and fleeces, curtains tied back by gum nut tassels, lights perched on explorers’ tripod theodolites.
The homestead retains a sense of history and place, paired with understated rustic-chic style. As the layout of the original homestead has been retained, each room has a character of its own and has been named after early settlers, explorers or property owners. Four bedrooms are housed in the main homestead while the Coach House is a delightful stone cottage in the corner of the garden for those who may prefer a little more seclusion.
In the heat of the summer, the swimming pool and deck is a welcome retreat after a morning or day spent exploring the bush.
Rates are inclusive of chef prepared meals, beverages and daily guided wilderness activities on the property (4WD safaris, wildlife viewing, daily guiding).
A swag is Wild Bush Luxury’s version of a rollaway bed and can be added to a bedroom if required. Swags are the Australian bedroll that have been used by generations of Australian pioneers. It is a mattress that is inside a canvas cover and made up with quality sheets & pillows. They are custom made, comfortable and are suitable for children only.
The property has a two night minimum stay and is open all year round.
