Arcadia Valley

Nestled between the Expedition and Carnarvon Ranges, Arcadia Valley lives up to the Greek origins of its name, Ideal Paradise.

Things to Experience

Nuga Nuga National Park offers a bush camping area on the bank of Lake Nuga Nuga. Note: there are no visitor facilities.

Lake Nuga Nuga is the largest natural body of water in the Central Highlands. Local Aboriginal people’s belief is that the lake was created by a pair of Mundagurri (Rainbow Serpents) that now reside under the two dominating peaks at the northern shoreline of the lake.

Explore the serenity of the lake by canoe, taking in the spectacular display of waterlilies which flower at times during the year. The lake provides a valuable habitat for water birds, making it a twitcher’s delight.

Expedition National Park The Lonesome section of the park can be accessed from Arcadia Valley. Stop at the lookout and take in the spectacular views.

Station Stay For a unique experience, stay overnight on a working cattle property. Guided tours are also available and feature a working dog demonstration.
