Naiko means ‘mother’ in Ramindjeri, a dialect of indigenous Australian people and the property is a sacred part of the Aboriginal Dreamtime. Rich with history, seafaring communities have been using the area for generations. In the mid nineteenth century, the property was part of the Silverton Silver mine, the ruins of which can still be explored today.The Johnson family first purchased Rarkang in 1998, their mission being to protect and preserve the land. It is also home to two permanent streams – Campbell Creek and Rarkang Creek which come from springs within Deep Creek. The Johnsons have worked hard to restore local vegetation so that its natural beauty can be enjoyed by many generations to come, and have created this idyllic retreat.
