This book is the first comprehensive car touring and bushwalking guide to the magnificent arid range country of Arkaroola, in the Northern Flinders Ranges, South Australia. Arkaroola is in the top echelon of outdoor destinations in Australia. Scenic grandeur, fascinating historic relics, engaging drives and a remarkable collection of walks are all within a day’s drive of the Village. Whether you choose to go for a stroll and finish the day with a good coffee at the Pick & Shovel, or immerse yourself in some of the grandest wilderness in the Outback, Arkaroola will most likely exceed your expectations.

There are 13 specially-prepared maps to guide you on your way to enjoying the 5 Locations (places of special interest), 10 Drives and 26 Walks. The walks range from strolls of a few hundred metres to full day epics into some of the wildest and remotest country in Australia.
