The largest national park on KI. Several must see attractions are within this park's perimeter, including Admiral's Arch. The visitor information centre has a cafe and tons of information on things to do at Flinders Park. It's a good idea to read up about things to do at this park on the park's website before actually paying a visit.

The Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch are incredible and well worth the visit, the wild landscape is breath taking and definitely one of the highlights of visiting Kangaroo Island.

I saw a lot of the native kangaroos which are the dark ones. There are wallabies, koalas, snakes, emus, dingo, and etc. It is nice place to visit. There is a decent gift shop.

Its a great park and if you like to stay outdoors and wandering around (even with young kids), it is really recommended to buy a 2 day pass. The very well posted walking trails starting from behind the cafe is a great way to spend your time with your family.

Great walks, informative signs, low cost. Sealed roads for major sites. More seals at Admirals Arch than Seal Bay.

Perhaps the Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch are not rave-worthy, but still pretty. Kangaroo Island is an expensive trip so not a must-do, but it's a *nice* destination if you're an Australian exploring your own backyard. I wouldn't suggest someone from overseas go out of their way to visit here. Admiral's Arch is best seen in the morning or dusk... More

We visited the Cape du Couedic lighthouse, Admiral's Arch and the Remarkable Rocks on a cold and sometimes wet day in September. Remarkable Rocks is a fascinating granite outcrop jutting into the sea. For photography it is probably best to visit these rocks first thing in the morning as the light will probably be the best. An early start would... More

Wonderful that you can climb all over these rocks. It was a great experience even though it was very misty at the time - that just added to the atmosphere. Views up and down the coast are also good. I was on a coach tour of Kangaroo Island and this was one of the highlights.
