Flinders Chase National Park, Kangaroo Island

Categories: National Parks, Nature & Parks
Inspirock Rating:
4.7/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web
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. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Flinders Chase National Park and many more Hanson Bay attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Hanson Bay trip builder.

  • If you love nature, you'll love Flinders Chase National Park, as the park offers some of Australia's most spectacular bushwalking. Start your visit at the Flinders Chase Visitor Centre. If you're pressed for time, make sure you visit Admirals Arch and Remarkable Rocks.
  • We had a wonderful time from exploring the Remarkable Rocks, to seeing the Seals at the Cape, to the kids playing in the Visitor Centre and bush walking in the well maintained tracks. You could easily spend days here - wonderful stuff.
  • Must do of Kangaroo island! If you have one day, go on a Koala safari from the visitor center by following the Discovery walk. Then go seals watching in admiral arch. Read about the lighthouse history and walk on the Weil's cove track. Finally watch the sunset on the Remarkable rocks. If you have a 2nd day, try your luck with the platypus walk, if you're silent you might see one!
  • Truly remarkable! Definitely a must visit if you're on the island. The day we visited, it showered a little but did not dampen the magnificence of these rocks.
  • If you're visiting Kangaroo Island you absolutely should visit Flinders Chase! We happened to have poor weather but we still saw fur seals sleeping on the rocks. The Remarkable Rocks were incredible, the sheer number of people visiting while we were there could attest to that.
