Arkaroola Walking Trails is a 1km, grade 3 circuit hike, located in Arkaroola Wilderness Sanctuary, South Australia. The hike should take approximately 1hr to complete.

Hike Summary

This article on Weekend Notes by Steve Hudson details three walks around the wildlife sanctuary property Arkaroola, in the north east of South Australia.

All three walks commence from the Accommodation Village.

All walks are suitable for families of all ages, with perhaps the latter part of Griselda Hill being the most difficult to negotiate.

One thought on “Arkaroola Walking Trails (1km)

  1. Don’t forget the true highlight of Arkaroola is Doug Sprigg. Bush legend with a brain full of geology and astronomy he runs observatories and flights that beat normal tourist fare. A true rough diamond.
