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!!
  • Awesome , took over our caravan , really nice sites if you are not a power pig. We are self sufficient and the privacy of these sites are exceptional. A lot like USA campground sites
  • 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!
  • so much fun! 9 dollars for a concession ticket and then you feel that you have just got the whole world!
  • 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!
