Starting from the car park at the Welcome Mine off Arkaroola Road, Arkaroola, this walk takes you on a circuit around Arkaroola Wilderness Sanctuary via the Bararranna Gorge Walk. Located in the northern Flinders Ranges, Arkaroola Wilderness Sanctuary is a spectacular private wilderness sanctuary founded by the Sprigg family in 1968, home to a wide range of birds, reptiles and mammals, including the endangered yellow-footed rock-wallaby. The sanctuary is a haven for outback explorers, featuring rolling countryside, rugged mountains, gorges, creeks, waterholes and many unique rock formations. This loop explores the complex geology of Arkaroola, from the ancient fossil seabeds now forming near-vertical cliffs in Bararranna Gorge to the ancient glacial rocks from past ice ages at Stubbs Waterhole, winding across shaly hills and passing between the high walls of Arkaroola Creek. The hike starts and ends at the Welcome Mine, an old copper mine located to the west of the Arkaroola Village, usually accessible by two-wheel drive vehicles. This loop consists of narrow walking trails, with some short steep hills and uneven natural surfaces, suitable for moderate fitness levels. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
