Well maintained park and roads. Ticked off so many animal sightings: koala, kangaroo, platypus, goanna etc. Very reasonable admission fee and great cafe. Remarkable Rocks and Admiral's Arch must do's when visiting Kangaroo Island. Can be windy and cool so take a jacket!

Beautiful coastline, Remarkable Rocks, woodland walks with Koalas and fur seals at a stunning rugged coastal cave, all within 20 minutes of the visitor centre. That is tremendous and hard to beat in most places. The visitor centre is very helpful and has an excellent history of the geology here. Great wee cafe as well - super coffee.

The roads here a very well maintained, and cleared regularly. The park café was friendly and well-stocked. A fabulous coffee set us off on our journey. The sights of Admiral's Arch and Remarkable Rocks are simply awesome. Set up well for easy access.

The coastline is great as are the Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch but the rest is not very interesting.

Coming to Kangaroo Island and not visiting Flinders Chase National Park would be like not having been to Kangaroo Island. The admission is quite cheap and you might visit 3 different sites. Some people are just going to the look out and then leave. But these people forgot that they're standing right on Admiral's Arch. It's just a 10 minutes... More

An awe inspiring place to be, we love the breathtaking views of the ocean, rugged cliffs, flora and fauna- like the thousand year old grass tree, row of eucalypts, even saw a koala up a tree, plus the lovable Australian and New Zealand fur seals. The best part is, it has the Remarkable Rocks!

I think Flinders Chase national park is the most attracting place in KI for visitors and no one should miss it. Great scenery along the sea, Seals(New Zealand Fur) lying on rocks in the sea, Remarkable rocks etc, everyone could find what he wants.

It takes a while to reach the national park at the other end of the island but the is worth it. The scenery is wonderful. I was there on a long weekend and yet there were no traffic problems - often on long stretches of road there was no other car in sight - and the only place there were... More
