We had read enough to know we wanted to visit Flinders Chase as part of our KI trip but we're not expecting it to be so impressive. The day we visited was wet and windy but the well constructed walkways and stairs at Admirals Arch were easy to navigate and we could smell the seals before we saw them. Amazing!... More

Flinders Chase is one of the reasons to go to Kangaroo island. The park is beautiful, the rangers are friendly, and because you're relatively off the beaten track, there aren't many other visitors. We had a great time on KI and this was one of the biggest reasons.

A must while visiting KI. The visitors centre staff are super too. Be sure to visit Cape Du Couedic to see the fur seals and Admiral's Arch. And follow that up with a drive to the Remarkable Rocks which are...remarkable!

We really enjoyed the drive from Kingscote to Flinders Chase National Park. We recommend seeing Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch and of course the beautiful seals! Loved the board walk.

The access has been carefully thought out so that even wheel chairs can negotiate the walkways, although not the walk up to the remarkable rocks or stairway to the arch. The scenery is breathtaking and there are plenty of vantage points to take in the views. The walkway is quite long and a gentle descent which gives the lungs a... More

My partner and I visited the Flinders Chase National Park in August 2016. The staff at the visitors office are extremely welcoming, friendly and up for a good chat. The lady who works at the Cafe was especially chatty and told us to look out for a whale with her calf in the bay on our adventures. It's $11.00 per... More

Pictures cannot justify how beautiful this national park is. It literally took our breath away and made worth the long-ish drive out. Do not miss this part of the island. Just surreal!
