It's nearly a two hour drive from Penneshaw but this was one of the highlights of our trip. Remarkable Rocks are just that - postcard stuff. And Admiral's Arch is an incredible sight (and smell) while the walk along the boardwalk down to sea level is spectacular offering the best views of seals in their natural habitat - much better...

This is our first time in Flinders Chase NP. First times tend to polarise your reactions. It's either amazing or crap or is that just me. Never have been a lukewarm kind of person. Flinders Chase fits into the former class. I've seen the pictures. I've read the reviews and I've read loads of online comments about the key features... More

Remarkable Rocks, Admirals Arch and the Platypus Walk are a MUST see on the Island. The facilities are fantastic and cater for the fit and not so fit.

I particularly loved the 4.5 km Platypus Waterholes Trail, as well as the short Heritage Trail. The latter gave me good views of several koalas each in their own tree, as well as a chance to watch several kangaroos and lots of Cape Barrens Geese. The Platypus Waterholes Trail, I did during the early to mid afternoon, so I knew... More

The scenery, the remarkable rocks, the fur seals. We stayed in the only hotel in the Park and could see a lot of wildlife in the hotel complex at night. Its fun.

We visited the main attractions of Admirals Arch and Remarkable Rocks on our recent visit. It was a very windy day but we were still able to access both these areas without too much difficulty (it was hard walking back up from the Arch with the strong winds but we did eventually make it). The visitors centre is great and... More

Beautiful landscape, lots of wildlife. Great! - the staff in the Visitor Center is extremely nice and very helpful - the Rocky River Campground (no powered sites, unfortunately) is impeccable - really nice sites, absolutely clean and very good facilities - we did the Heritage walk in the evening: lots of wildlife (geese, wallabies, koalas, kangaroos) and a beautiful scenery...
