For intrepid spirits, this castaway retreat in the wild confines of Vulkathunha–Gammon Ranges National Park, just south of Arkaroola, is an unforgettable experience. Only accessible by four-wheel drive, the hut is actually a substantial stone dwelling perched on a rise overlooking the jagged flanks of the Gammon Plateau. The verandah views across the creek to the ranges are captivating, and there’s abundant scope for day walks and exploring. The gas and solar-powered hut sleeps eight and has a modern kitchen. Although the comforts are rudimentary, in this remote enclave they feel like the height of luxury.
