Flinders Chase National Park, Kangaroo Island

4.8
Sanctuary to a number of species near extinction and home to the New Zealand fur seals, Flinders Chase National Park is composed of a group of protected areas at the western end of Kangaroo Island. The seal colony lives at the park's iconic Admiral's Arch, which is just one of a few geological phenomena found in this region. Remarkable Rocks, naturally sculpted formations precariously balanced atop a granite outcrop, allow you to climb under, over, and around them. They also provide an ideal natural backdrop for photographs. Watch your step here and don't let the kids run ahead, as the rocks rest on the edge of a lichen-covered cliff, which gets steep deceptively quickly.

  • Extraordinary! A quick walk around the visitor's centre and close encounters with kangaroos, wallabies and koalas! To do are for sure the steps at Admiral's Arch (where sea lions and seals) and Remarkable Rocks. Some advice? Upturned nose that koalas are everywhere!!

  • We travelled to the Chase in a group from a cruise ship as part of the Kangaroo Island Adventure Tours and it is well worth it. As part of this tour, it included a tour of Seal Bay by the rangers ther...  more »

  • This is a unique place to visit. Yes it is far. We came on a cruise ship and took sealink tour (booked it direct online). Was a great experience. Among the few places we saw was this national park. The drive is nice. The rocks are worth seeing especially with the orange color and the blue color ocean in the background. Enjoy!
  • Beautiful park full of wildlife and many different trails from short to pretty long. Thee admiral's arch and remarkable rocks were really nice sites. Everything is well prepared and explained with nearby parking. The staff was also very nice and provided plenty of information and tips. We really recommend visiting this national park!
  • A lot of places to view the nature on the island and some nice places to stop for lunch. Getting to see so many koalas in one place is always special and the seals and remarkable rocks were also interesting. Taking a guided tour is recommended to learn a lot about the local area and wildlife.
  • This was a great conservation park as it was clean and easily accessible. The price was beyond good if you look at what it offers- Remarkable Rocks, lighthouses, Admirals Arch etc.... Therefore, I highly recommend visiting this park as it offers the highest quality of scenery and accessibility. There is also parking spaces for all sights in the park. If you are lucky, you might even see colonies of New Zealand fur seals lying on the rock-beds near the Admirals Bay.
  • I love the admirals arch with all the seals. Also the remarkable rocks are amazing. Next to stokes bay this was my favourite visit on kangeroo island

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 and families with kids.
