Flinders Chase National Park, Kangaroo Island

(1,100+ reviews on the web)
National Park
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 Kangaroo Island attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Kangaroo Island trip builder.

  • We arrived in the afternoon and spent the night at Snake Lagoon campsite. The facilities were pretty basic with drop toilets and no drinking water, but you got to share the campsite with a family of k...  more »
  • There are no words to describe the beauty of this park that will help you to discover some of the most picturesque Southern icons as the Admiral Arch or Remarkable Rocks. we ventured into this park in the evening, just before closing and we enjoyed spectacular views of the sunset over the suggestive light and grandiose. We were so excited that we decided to return the next day in the morning. Thanks to the Sun that was shining bright we saw numerous appisolate seals on rocks! The emotion felt cannot be described with mere words!

  • If you take to the Kangaroo Island is already the tour, you must visit this park. Here you can observe animals (koalas, echidnas, birds) in the wild. Sadly, that seems not without bloodshed on the streets, because the number of dead kangaroos at the roadside is frightening. Our bus got one...

  • Beautiful place with abundant wildlife. We saw seals, koalas, wallabies, and even a curious little echidna on the road. Well worth paying the hefty ferry price to KI.
  • 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.
  • Great scenery. Good visitors centre.
  • 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!
