upon recommendation from the staff at flinders chase visitor centre, we trekked out to ravine des casoars located in the north west of kangaroo island. the road was corrugated and dusty which made for a long and bumpy trip (we had a sedan hire car which we probably shouldn't have taken out there, 4WDs recommended). when we arrived at the...

While this park is at the far end of the island it also has some of the best attractions on the island. It is mostly bush with unsealed roads through it and you can expect to see some wildlife such as kangaroos. The roads are good as long as it isn't wet and are well-maintained. The two attractions at the... More

We visited Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch, which are both stunning, well maintatined to support the natural setting, and protect the environment. The rangers were friendly and helpful and we felt welcome to explore and enjoy.

We drove from Kingscote to Flinders Chase for the day, and what a day it was. There is a small entrance fee to the park ($20 for the two of us). We hiked a few of the trails seeing numerous kangaroos, wallabies, koalas, Cape Barren Geese, and an echidna, several parrots and other birds. We also went to the Remarkable... More

You will be shock at the natural beauties at this park. I went there and did not expect much but after a couple of hours there, I wanted to stay even longer. The road is in good condition so you can you a sedan even a small car, no problem. The whole trip will take at least 2 hours, but... More

The staff at the reception was very helpful and provided us with a suggested itinerary and clear road map. It was very safe to drive in the park with clear directions given. Admiral's Arch was magnificent and you can definitely see many seals there (no need to go seal bay and spend $$$$). The remarkable rocks were also fun for... More

Visited in October 2014 right in the middle of a cold front coming past the island. Rain, bitterly cold winds, freezing my what nots off (and I was rugged up with jacket and beanie etc). Loved it. Did the walk down to Admirals Arch and watched the huge waves crashing into the basin below the arch and the seals in... More

My wife and i spent 2 days exploring the park: on day 1 was the visitor centre and walking trails. While we found no platypus (u need to go at dusk or dawn and be extremely patient) we saw countless numbers of wallabies, roos, echidna, Cape barren geese and koalas. On day 2 we spent time exploring remarkable rocks, admirals... More
