Loved the Flinders Chase National Park and the walks. We did the Heritage Walk and the Platypus Waterholes walk and it was done brilliantly. The Heritage Walk was stunning. The scenery and the wildlife was magical, I haven't seen anything like it. We saw Cape Barron Geese, Wallabies, Kangaroos, Birds and a Koala. It was one of the best places... More

Finally ticked this place off my "to see list". So much wildlife here and the views are stunning. Lovely walk down to Admirals Arch and was surprised to see so many seals. Great photo opportunities with an amazing vista at every turn. The Remarkable Rocks did not disappoint. Great to get amongst them and marvel at nature.

Simply beautiful and full of wildlife. We saw kangaroos, an echidna, wallabies, a wide variety of birds, and bubbles from a hiding platypus (we are sure he/she was there). Wonderful welcome center and restroom facilities. Highly recommend. Be careful driving - wildlife everywhere.

Our family would highly recommend visiting Flinders Chase. Admirals Arch is not to be missed. Just driving on the dirt roads bordering the park puts you in totally different, peaceful world than the typical urban environment. I drove for an hour and didn't pass another car. One tip: Our 23-year-old son hiked the Ravine des Casoars trail because it was... More

So beautiful best experience just loved the views. Seals basking in the sun could have touch them so close. Better than the Great Ocean Road and that takes some beating.

Did both admirable's rock and the remarkables. Both were great fun, and the seal viewing was a special benefit. The cafe was great for lunch and had a very extensive menu. Then did the platypus walk - unfortunately didn't see any, but it goes through some beautiful bushland with many geese and some wallabies and also has some information about... More

We were going to skip the west of the island due to our rental car kilometres being capped at 100km a day - however, we decided to pay the extra because it was such a landmark. I'm so pleased we made this decision as it was an amazing adventure for my 8 year old daughter who loved watching the seals... More

We were totally amazed by the Remarkable rocks as well as the Admirals Arch. The New Zealans fur seals are also great to observe even though sweet-smelling they ain´t, as the Lonely Planet says:) There are also good photo oportunities near the Remarkable Rocks after the sunset so I would recommend a visit in the late afternoon and waiting for...

Quite stunning natural beauty. Remarkable rocks are like contemporary sculptures. Great views of the rugged coastline including the arch with resident NZ fur seal population. Also enjoyed walks through the bushland with plenty of bird and animal life to enjoy.
