    I have been here 4 times and loved it each time. The seals are nice to watch too...what a life! Try to get ahead of the tour buses to ensure your photos don't have people in them, but if you can't gra...  more »

    Admirals Arch is a highlight of any trip to KI. The boardwalk provides easy access to Admirals Arch, with plenty of spots along the way to enjoy the stunning scenery and to view the seals and sea lion...  more »

    Long and easy walk! Breath taking views. Many seals resting on the rocks.

    Fantastic & free spot to view seals, watch the waves roar & crash over chiseled rock, photograph the heath & lighthouse, watch the sun set, easily accessible via well-maintained boardwalk, although short flights of stairs at the very end. Dress warmly for the wind. I would spend more time here than Remarkable Rocks even though that spot is more often photographed. (We spotted an echidna at the fringes of Remarkable Rocks close to sunset). Blue fairy wrens at the carpark if you are quiet enough.

    Easy walk down boardwalk and wooden steps. Can be very ,very windy. Keep an eye out for the New Zealand sea lions too - they look like darker Brown marks on the rocks in the picture.

    Great walking track down to Admirals Arch. Stunning views and lots of Seals around. Definitely worth a visit!

    Well worth the walk down the stairs - and mouth dropping :-)

Where to stay in Kangaroo Island

Although most of Kangaroo Island remains relatively underdeveloped in a commercial sense, you'll find lodgings that include everything from spacious suites to economical hostels in communities like Penneshaw and Kingscote. The most expensive accommodations on the island, private cottages and beach houses near the water generally require a two-night minimum stay. For something more flexible and less expensive, consider one of the local campgrounds, many of which offer powered and unpowered sites, as well as cozy log cabins ideal for couples andĀ families with kids.
