South Australia is one of Australia's great culinary stories: - its soils and clean air providing the key natural parameters for fresh and innovative produce. Arkaba has adopted a 'buy local' principle and the head chef uses the very best of South Australia's produce to craft the food program with a few native elements to add a unique intrigue and interest. 


Arkaba's real luxury comes with the fact that it is small and therefore intensely personal - hosted dinners and sharing stories with field guides and fellow guests provide an atmosphere more akin to staying with friends in the country, or a private safari lodge. A purely South Australian wine cellar has been selected to showcase a cross-section of wine growing regions with the grape varieties for which they are best known. The bar is completely open and the chef will adapt very specifically to guest tastes and needs. 

Dining around an old wool classing table on the outdoor terrace with the ever-changing light and sounds of the bush all around is a special and uniquely Australian experience. A firepit in the corner of the garden provides a great spot to retire to after dinner with a glass of wine or port to watch the stars appear over this ancient landscape. 


"What a wonderful experience. Great drives, excellent food and wines. And above all the warm hospitality. Thank you - we will spread the word in Holland."
