We spent over 9 hours (afternoon and evening) in the park: visitor center, remarkable rocks, lighthouse, admiral's arch, walk to the cover, platypus loop... Saw New Zealand fur seals, including some baby seals nursing; wallabies, possums, goanna, birds, koalas, etc. Alas, we did not see...More

From the visitor center we took the Black Swamp Hike (loop), the only longer loop from the visitor center. The first part of this trail is also the trail for a few other, short hikes and therefore more busy. On the second part we saw...More

Sometimes you experience nature in its raw power, diversity and beauty, and it makes you feel terribly small and awe-struck. Prepare for that feeling time and time again in Flinders Chase. The standard visit is about 2 hours visiting the lighthouse, Admiral's Arch with the...More

Even my children, who love nothing better than staring at the phones, enjoyed coming here. The scenery is fantastic and it was great to sit and take it all in. Some great photo opportunities.

We thoroughly enjoyed seeing Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch. Great seeing all the seals relaxing on the beach at Admirals Arch. Get there early if you can to avoid the tourist buses.

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

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
