The sea lion colony at Admirals Arch (within the NP) is a great place to get up close and personal with these beautiful creatures. Also take the time to explore Wier's Return near the light house to learn some of the harsh history of the...More

Amazing place on earth, worth every penny. The park is quite big so safe a few hours to spend in there. The Information office has all the information needed and just next to it you can find nice trails with kangaroos, koalas and a few...More

While the drive from Penneshaw is lengthy, it is well worth it as there are many scenic spots to stop on the way. The main attractions at the park are the Admirals Arch and Remarkable Rocks. There is lots of flora to see and photograph.

We loved the Remarkable Rocks as well as Admirals Arch and Cape de Couedic Lighthouse. We also did the Platypus Waterhole Hike from the Visitor's Center - very nice but unfortunately no platypus in sight. We found the lady at the information desk at the...More

There's plenty to do, we did the remarkable rocks and admirable arch as well as the discovery walk starting at the visitor center. The rocks and arch offers wonder and expansive views. Plenty of photo opportunities.

Remarkable Rocks, indeed they are. Look otherworldly and almost like they don't belong. Perched at the edge of a cliff and well worth a look.

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
