Arkaroola features rugged mountains, towering granite peaks, magnificent gorges and mysterious waterholes, the 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 four-wheel drive Ridgetop Tour is world famous; journey to the depths of ancient seabeds and across razorback 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, Arkaroola is truly unique.
