A brilliant day out. Kangaroo island is my favourite place in Australia and of all the great things to see on kangaroo island Flinders Chase is just great. I've got some amazing photos and lots of melodies of climbing about there too!

This is definitely the highlight of KI although it rained the entire three day we spent in the area and warning if there is a severe weather alert do not go to Admirals Arch as I nearly blew off the boardwalk and straight into the Southern Ocean. I did not know there was a warning before I left. We stayed... More

Remarkable Rocks, Admirals Arch, New Zealand fur seals. Remote location but worth the trip. The rugged shoreline and crashing waves are a photographers paradise. One enters the park close to the visitor center. Everyone is helpful and nice and there is a small cafe if you need a snack. Go to the park first if you only have one day... More

We had a memorable day. The staff at the visitors centre were fantastic, friendly and very helpful. A modern, well designed centre. There is so much to see including Admirals Arch, Casuarina Islets, Remarkable Rocks and Weirs Cove. There's a large colony of New Zealand fur seals at Cape du Couledic. We would highly recommend a visit, you're missing out... More

Flinders Chase is pretty remote and that is one of its best attractions. You can really get away from it all. We found the visitors/information centre great. The staff were very helpful and they make great coffee.

Nice modern visitor centre - call in before you enter the park for maps, walk info, coffee shop and souvenirs. Plus often there are koalas in the trees in the carpark - so look up!

Wonderful place to visit, stopped at the Remarkable Rocks on the way out to Admirals Arch to watch the sunset. Stunning views, well worth the drive. Please keep in mind that you are in a national park, and the kangaroos are everywhere,so if you are driving through the park as the sun goes down, drive carefully

Lots of wallabies and geese. Walks to remote beaches excellent. Great info centre. Camping areas pleasant but a bit pricey when you factor in the daily national Park fee also. Many dirt roads but in good condition.
