A trip to Kangaroo Island would not be complete without coming to Flinders Chase National Park. It is just beautiful.

Flinders Chase is an extensive park with lots of wildlife and plants to see. We started off on the Platypus Waterhole trail. No Platypus this time, but we did see lots of Cape Barren Geese with chicks, a Grey Kangaroo, Fairy Wrens, New Holland Honey Eaters, Scarlet Robins, lots of Red Wattle Birds, Rainbow Lorikeets, two Echidnas which were very...

Worth the visit... The weather was wild and cold for July but well worth the experience. The National Parks are extremely well managed, the roads and walks are some of the best I have seen. Amazing coastal walks! We watched two Humpback Whales breaching off the south coast, New Zealand Fur Seals lounging amongst the rocks and Sea Eagles gliding... More

wish I had that flare for writing, or even if I did not sure if words could describe the beauty of this place. The blue see and the cold winds right from the icy Antarctica I can never forget. Beautiful place and a must go for all the nature lovers. We could see lazy seals all around enjoying the water... More

The food was great but having the blue wrens made the experience extra good. They then went to the car park where they were joined with a robin red breast!

This is a fantastic area to visit with overseas visitors. The staff at the visitors centre provide a wealth of information about access to sites and what to look for at each location. From the short self guided walks near the information centre, to the big attractions of Remarkable Rocks and Admiral's Arch, to the less visited Snake Lagoon; there... More

Most beautiful sanctuary my children will ever get to see! loved every second of it! I recommend staying in the closest town (Parndana) and exploring everything there is to explore down the west end!

The wildlife and scenery is the reason most people travel to Kangaroo Island, and Flinders Chase NP has it in spades. We saw wild geese, an echidna and a koala before we even walked into the visitors centre. The park rangers were friendly and knowledgeable and helped us make the most of our visit on a rainy miserable day. I... More

A must see when in KI. Fabulous scenery, great light house. The fur seals at the Admiral's Arch were mesmerizing frolicking in the rock pools. The remarkable rocks are huge and amazing shapes and shades. Great photo opportunities and holiday memories.
