We really enjoyed the boardwalk to Admirals Arch. Nice to watch the seals basking on the rocks and playing in the tidal pools and then the arch at the end is a great photo op! Remarkable Rocks was our favorite, lots of photo opportunities there!

We ate breakfast here a couple of times and it was lovely! Driving through was a bit scary as we were worried about the hire car but luckily it was fine. Once you realise that driving near 40 is actually less bumpy than sitting at 20 it's not so bad! Beautiful place, such a shame we didn't have time to... More

Great combo of natural beauty with abundant wildlife. The Visitors Centre is well-run, with good advice and even a decent cafe

Loved camping in this place for three nights with the family at Rocky River campsite. Total access to the park, great facilities(bbq, showers, toilets, and the café a short walk away). Beautiful places to see and loads of wildlife.

We had the good fortune to visit the park on two separate occasions during our stay on kangaroo Island. The first of which was during a guided tour of the Lighthouse, Admiral Arch and Remarkable Rocks. I still can't stop thinking about how awestruck I was by the Arch and the Rocks in particular - truly feats of nature at... More

Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch are "must see" attractions on Kangaroo Island. Facilities at both sites are good. Not good however are directional signs at the excellent Information Centre to these attractions. Maps in the centre are vague and we exited the car park and went the wrong way for some distance before we turned back before finding the first... More

Well worth the drive, looking for koalas as we went....and walking on the beautiful rock formations and cliffs.

Australia's National Parks system is top notch. They have done an exceedingly good job of making their sites accessible. Both the Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch are great examples of the power and beauty of nature. - The Platypus Hike, across well constructed boardwalks and well laid paths, was pleasant. They have enough interesting signage along the way that you're... More

This national park is well worth a visit - unfortunately two of the major roads in the park are heavily corrugated and are not appropriately sign posted.

We stopped here on our last day on KI and spent at least 2 hours climbing the Remarkable Rocks and watching the seals that make Admirals Arch their home. Our 7 and 9 yr old daughters loved "rock climbing" and posing for pictures in all of the nooks and crannies that nature has carved out over millions of years. Don't... More
