Flinders Chase National Park, Kangaroo Island

(4.7/5 based on 1,100+ 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 Kangaroo Island attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Kangaroo Island trip builder.

  • Directly at the information centre, there are a few ways for a walk. Here we could me much patience then see also Koala bears. With about 20 AUD for two people for the entire national park, also with fair prices.

  • 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!
