Flinders Chase National Park, Kangaroo Island

(4.7/5 based on 1,000+ 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.

  • If you go to KI you have to visit this beautiful place. The view and the natural wanders are breathtakingly beautiful. We didn't want to leave. 
  • Went with KI hire a guide service. We were able to get to places the buses couldnt. Plus it was just us 3. Beautiful and lots of animals. Great place and great service 
  • We visited the two recommendations from the office location of the Park, or Admirals arch and sea lions, the remarkable stocks and to finish the walk next to the office of sombtueux landscapes and amazing! Worth a look and do not miss it, even if it is at the end of l island for the d walk an hour we could see koalas, very cute

  • 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!
