Remarkable Rocks and Admiral Arch a must to see. A hint: If you want the best photos of the Remarkable Rocks, let there be sunshine to bring out the red lichen growing on the rocks.

It was a long drive to reach, but well worth it. We drove through a thunderstorm with downpours, and it cleared up just as we arrived. The Visitor Center to this park was very well done and the display about the area taught us a lot about its uniqueness. We had planned to have our lunch in the cafe but... More

The Park was our last visit in our day trip from Kingscote. We made sure we had our ticket & map before 5pm when the office closed. Driving to Platypus trail was really uncomfortable (in 4wd) and unfortunately didn't see any - try in a wetter season. The sealed road around the loop from rocks to arch is great except... More

It is located in the opposite corner of all main cities, you you might have to drive 100km from Kingscote or 140 from Penneshaw (roads are OK, and allowed to drive up to 110KM/H in some places so it doesn't take much). After arriving to visitor center (you need to pay 30ish AUD I think it was for the 3... More

Flinders Chase National Park was a highlight of our time at Kangaroo Island! The views and wildlife make it so well worth the price of admission. Yes, there is a cost to visit. You have to stop at the visitor center to pick up your tickets. The visitor center is very nice. Lots of great information as well as clean... More

We drove through the NP to visit Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch, stunning scenery and both the Rocks and Arch are worth seeing.

On the far west of Kangaroo Island so a bit of a drive., but this is an absolutely "do not miss" visit. The people in the Visitor Center were very helpful and pleasant. The two main features in the Park are Admirals Arch and Remarkable Rocks. Both are amazing geological wonders and the access to both from the car parks... More

We spent 4 days camping at Flinders Chase Rocky River camp ground enjoying the walks and drives within the park. The camp site and amentities were fine as we don't require power and it it meant not needing the car for many walks in the area. The wild life and variety of vegatations well worth the time. We also booked... More
