Flinders Chase National Park, Kangaroo Island

National Park · Wildlife Area
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.

  • Loved our time in Flinders Chase National Park - enjoyed seal spotting and wave watching at Admirals Arch & Remarkable Rocks was even more impressive than when I was last there more than 20yrs ago...  more »

  • I visited this area of kangaroo island a couple of weeks ago. During my time there I saw a very large amount of "road kill" which was quite upsetting.  more »
  • A must do stop over when visiting Kangaroo Island! Lots of options for hiking from short to long ones. Of course, the 2 main attractions are Remarkable Rocks and Admiral Archs that have beautiful view points.
  • Stunning place with lots of pristine forests and beaches full of wildlife. Amazed by the Amazing Rocks and the Admiral's Arch.
  • Terrific for hikers, drivers and walkers alike, this fab reserve incorporates 2 of the highlights of your Kangaroo Island tour - the Admirals Arch (an absolute must) with its breath taking formation, vistas and colony of brown seals (completely different to those in Real Bay) and the stunning wonder that is Remarkable Rocks. You can drive and park at each attraction, including the lighthouse, and the Visitors Centre. Entry circa $16. There are toilet facilities at each of the sites, and coffee shop at the Visitors Centre serves very decent coffee and even food on the bush setting terrace. Don't miss this place despite the long drive from anywhere else on the Island.
  • Not all of this park will stun you or wow you especially not the dirt roads BUT there is quite a few gems here and some absolutely breathtaking and stunning natural wonders. Make sure to visit as much of this place as you can, even the little places :)
  • It was magnificent, the views were incredible. K.I. is such a beautiful place to visit. The board walk to admirals arch was really well done. Would have loved to have spent more time there
