Beautiful place, kangaroos and koalas all around. Lovely place on way to remarkable rock. Very dry and very Australian, goannas and lizards.

Great place to visit. My grandchildren love it. There are lots of interesting shapes of rocks. Seals can sometimes be seen from the rocks.

The Remarkable Rocks definitely live up to the name. I just kept thinking how they looked like a talented artist had sculpted and carefully placed them there. I kept finding more to see in these beautiful sea carved natural sculptures, the colors, the shapes, all...More

Definitely worth the trip. Take a picnic or have lunch at the visitor centre. We saw a koala eating its way through the leaves on a tree in the car park and it was still there as we left! Just look up!

We did the hike to Admirals Arch and the Remarkable Rocks. Stunningly Beautiful!! The hike from the light house is easy to follow and not too strenuous. The rocks are remarkable as the name suggests!

You've got time to this and more in two days. A few other things we enjoyed on KI were: Little Sahara, Koala Walk, Pelican feeding and Kelly Hill Cave. We did a great hike at Flinder's Chase so you might want to try that too.

Thanks for the helpful responses Yachtgal. Just googled Island Beach and it looks lovely. But I am a little smitten with the warm richness of the orchre cliffs at Red Banks, so I may want to give it a try. My kids are 4 and 8. No problems with the elder one as she is very active and imagines herself as an explorer. It's the toddler I am most worried about. He needs to be carried if the terrain is unfriendly, or if the walk is too long. Backbreaking for us, parents (literally!). So I am in...More
Koala Avenue just outside Flinders Chase National Park (5 Replies)
Could somebody tell me the exact location of this road? We are visiting from the Netherlands at the end of the month and looking for the best places to go. We are staying overnight in Karatta the first night and the 2nd night in Kingscote so we will be zigzagging over the island trying to see as much as possible. Thanks
