A wonderful national park for scenery, walking and wildlife. We saw so many animals (except platypus). Even had to shoo a contemplative koala off the side of the road during one drive. Spectacular coastal scenery at the Remarkable Rocks and Admiralty Arch (plus seals galore). All up, just great.

The Remarkable are quite unique and a short easy walk. Koalas are fairly easy to spot. The walk behind the visitors center takes you through lovely and varied scenery. We saw baby geese and a number of koalas.

We contemplated driving into the park outside the opening hours of the visitor centre (permits can be purchased using a self-registration station) so as to avoid the big busloads of tourists. But were deterred by the description of roads being "congested" with kangaroos and wallabies. Contributing to a road kill would have destroyed our whole holiday experience. A local advised... More

So beautiful! We camped for two nights here, we had the good fortune to have a while campsite to ourselves. The walks are lovely, with a mix of difficulty. We saw kangaroos, wallabies, geese and echidnas. The beaches and bush are pristine. Highly recommend making the trip to KI to visit. Give yourself more than a day or toe to... More

We visited the Admiral's Arch and Remarkable Rock in the park. These 2 are the must visit places on Kangaroo Island. The scenery was awesome. The NZ fur seals can be spotted as you walk along the boardwalk to the Admiral's Arch. It's a short relaxing walk to the arch. The climb up the Remarkable Rock was rather easy although... More

National Park information center is informative. Lady at the counter was very pleasant and helpful. Admirals arch worth the drive. Easy boardwalk to get there and see lots of seals for free. Remarkable rocks are really something to see. Wow

I had never seen a photo of Admiral's Arch and my husband said it was something I should definitely see so we headed there on an extremely cold and windy day! The cold and windy weather actually made for an amazing experience because the waves were insanely high and stunning to see! The seals were everywhere and the sea spray... More

The drive was quite long. Thankfully we had awesome weather! Not something I would do whilst the sun is starting to set as loads of wildlife decided to cross the road, regardless of cars. Well worth the drive though.
