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.

  • Some awesome places to see. Love Admiral Arch!!! The view and all the seals with the sun setting was amazing. Didn't see the platypus in the watering hole but had a ball getting there and finding our way back in the dark. Stayed at the rocky river camp in camp 16 as recommended at the information centre and the lady did not steer us wrong. Such a lovely site!!
  • Great option for day visit or multi day camping. Combination of spectacular beaches, ocean views and coastal forest. Many hiking path options, and a couple of dirt road MTB bike routes.
  • An amazing place to visit. You will see seals resting on the beach and swimming in the ocean. Also koalas and kangaroos. You will see the Remarkable Rocks which are awesome.
  • Stayed in the camp grounds, wow, amazing facilities, stainless steel food areas, bbq's etc. Very very clean showers and toilets with lovely hot showers, perfect for refreshing after a day of touring the park. All staff and others should be very proud.....well done!
  • Excellent facility with plenty of wildlife to see. Well laid out walks with multiple grades from easy to really easy.
