  • Great place, amazing nature views, great pic ops, some of it you need to climb, so not suitable for handicapped etc. Wear warm clothes .  more »
  • You may be disinclined to travel the length of kangaroo island just to see a pile of rocks, but that would be a mistake. These rock formations are incredible and look almost like abstract sculptures. ...  more »

  • A group of rocks, formed into unusual shapes, perched high on rugged cliffs, overlooking views of the ocean. A well laid out attraction, with signs of human intervention kept to a minimum. Facilities are basic, and this works well. Don't expect a gift shop or toilets that flush. Make sure you look under the rocks, many huge rocks are really just perched on a few square centimetres of support. Moody around sunset or sunrise.
  • Their name says it all. Did not realise how big they are until seen. Was heavily raining and strong winds while I was there and fortunately not at all slippery as expected. The red markings on these massive rock formations come from lichen. There is an easy boardwalk to get here. Near the car park is an authentic Aussie "longdrop" toilet.
  • More than just the rocks which are clearly seen from afar as you stroll down the boardwalk, we saw an echidna at the bushes at the base of the rocks, early sunset mid-March. They're so cute when they waddle & you can get very close! Also, blue fairy wrens hop around the carpark if you are quiet, close to dusk. I like that we can walk between the rocks & explore. Small kids should be carried as the winds are strong & no rails. You shouldn't spend more than half an hour here. Must see Admirals' Arch after. 15km from the National Park visitors' centre, I highly recommend you stay overnight at the Heritage Accommodation (search Mays Homestead on Flinders Chase National Park website - the booking form is hard to find but the stay was easy & so worth it for the animal sightings).
  • These rocks look like they're from another planet! The incredible shapes boggle the mind. They seem like nature could never make them! The surrounding scenery is also beautiful! The ocean is beautiful and the landscape is rolling and calm.
  • Feels very surreal as you walk here. You can't miss out on this when you are in KI!
