So this is the reason you visit Kangaroo Islands - From Admirals's Arch to Seal's bay everything is so gorgeous and peaceful you can spend hours sitting around. Very well maintained too. Though there are steep cliffs and a lot of walking to be done - we had no inconvenience with a toddler. You can take the Baby buggy at... More

We visited Admiral's Arch on a hot day and could have spent hours watching the seals on the rocks below. The site is really well signposted with info boards and it's a lovely - and easy - boardwalk to and from the carpark. Remarkable Rocks is brilliant too. We also did the platypus pools walk which was very interesting and... More

We started off going to the information centre and see what we can do. It is worth doing the 2 hour return platypus walk (at first we thought we would just do a little bit then turn around, but we just kept going and had a great time!!) We saw lots of wildlife!!! Go and see admirals arch, but definately... More

We've made sure that we visited this park with each of the groups of family who have made the trip to South Australia. With the Remarkable Rocks and Admiral's Arch as the key go-to areas, we've also done some driving around near the park centre to try and see the platypus (without luck) playing in the local ponds. If you're... More

We stayed in on of the lighthouse keepers cottages at Cap du Couedic - totally spectacular and back to nature. Really quiet at night, but sadly due to the clouds at night we missed the spectacular stars. That said it was amazing to stay somewhere so back to nature with signs telling us to avoid leaving doors open to stop... More

Stunning place - completely blown away by the waves hitting the coast near Admiral's Arch and loved seeing the unique Remarkable Rocks for sunset!

Remarkable Rocks really are remarkable! Cape du Couedic Lighthouse is a great spot. Viewing seals near Admiral's Arch is cool. Then the arch itself had everyone near us going "wow" when we all saw it

These huge rocks that have been there thousands of years in these strange formations are a sight to see. One can also carefully climb on some of them. Gtpreat photos to be taken of them and the coastline where they are located.

Really amazing, incredibly windy but worth the short stroll to explore. If you pick you timing late afternoon or early morning you can avoid the crowds & may even be lucky enough to get photos without people photo bombing. Very special part of the world.

You cannot visit the island without going to the national park. So many places to see and sights to behold. Take lots of pictures
