Proudly wild bush luxury

Wild Bush Luxury, founded by Charles Carlow, is a collection of immersive nature experiences in exclusive and remote Australian locations.

It’s experiential travel that is not your traditional 5-star, though has been designed for travellers who have a natural love and interest in nature and are looking for authentic wilderness encounters.

We define luxury through the exclusivity of space (1 guest: 6,300 acres of space) over the commercial luxury hotel experience.

Expect a complete disconnection from the everyday, to reconnect with nature and feel a re-wilding of the spirit. From multi-day walks to safari-style adventures – each is designed as a nature immersion, complemented by an all-inclusive service so that no fine detail is overlooked.

Our shared vision

Arkaba and Wild Bush Luxury are part of Experience Co (ASX:EXP), an adventure tourism company. Experience Co reflects our vision and business strategy of offering high quality and memorable adventure tourism experiences. The vision of the company is to be the most recognised and respected adventure business in Australia and New Zealand.

Guided with confidence

Arkaba was taken on by Wild Bush Luxury and opened to guests in 2009 and is now home to some of Australia’s best field guides, conservationists and chefs who share the passion for connecting guests with the surrounding environment.

Our heritage

Arkaba’s history is a blend of Indigenous heritage, European settlement, pastoralism, and contemporary conservation efforts. Today, it serves as both a reminder of the past and a testament to the importance of preserving Australia’s unique wilderness areas.

Before European settlement, the land on which Arkaba now stands was inhabited by the Adnyamathanha (Hill People).

In 1856, the Historic Arkaba Woolshed and the five bedroom heritage Homestead was built and retains its original Flinders region settler lines.

Arkaba conservancy today has become a model for conservation tourism where guests can enjoy the historic accomodation, guided wildlife experiences, learn about the indigenous heritage and engage in immersive encounters.

How to experience arkaba

Arkaba is a private wildlife conservancy destination, providing just a handful of guests the opportunity to stay in the historic homestead, or take part in a multi-day overland walking expedition. Guests will be immersed in the stories of the land’s ancient geology, observe diverse wildlife and learn about the conservation projects on the property.
