If you want to get away from it all, you can't get much further than this! We stayed a couple of nights, and cmpletely failed to see any platypus - which we duly reported as requested. We continued to see no platypus throughout our trip (!), but many other Ozbeasts!

While it takes a while to get to Flinders Chase National Park from Kingscote (about 1.5 hours), it is well worth the visit. Only $10 for a day pass which is a great deal for all that you can see and do. The main attractions include Admirals Arch and Remarkable Rocks both of which are stunning. However, you should also...

The national park has a $10 entry fee. Allow about 2 to 3 hour to see the main sites. You will need to do some walking to get to them. The walkways and roads are well maintained. The speed limit on the roads in the park is 60 km/ hr

We only visited for a day, but the sights; Remarkables and Admirals Arch, and wildlife; seals, koalas, kangaroos, wallabies and birds were amazing, Missed out on a Platypus sighting though, yet again!

We spent 4 days in the park which it seems very few people do. Away from the tourist hot spots there are lots of great walking opportunities and off season, very few people around at all so it's a quiet commune with nature. The roads are terrifically maintained and the park stunning.

A beautiful spot for exploring and photographing. Unspoiled. Plenty of wildlife to see. We found great walks, natural beauty and a clean, well-run park.

It was windy and chilly on the day we were there, but I'm so glad we didn't miss this place. First we walked the trails to look for platypus, but learned too late that they are very hard to find, and mostly seen at dawn and dusk. Then we went down the steps to see the seals. Very worthwhile walk.... More

Without a doubt one of the highlights of my trip. Totally surrounded by nature, lots of koalas and kangaroos and I was lucky enough to see lots of seals too. The Remarkables and Admirals Arch both truly spectacular and breathtaking. Absolutely do not miss it. Food a bit ordinary, baguettes were stale, that was my only minor disappointment in the... More
