Sunrise at Remarkable Rocks

My husband is very keen to take photos of the Remarkable Rocks at sunrise. Is that possible? Which are the recommended accommodation places which will make this easier? Thank you very much!

Not sure. Remarkable Rocks is in a NP - here is the website:

http://www.parks.sa.gov.au/parks/index.htm

If you stay in the NP, probably,

if they open gates at a particular time & you are staying outside may be a problem. (at a superficial look at the site couldn't tell)

No gates as far as I know. B & Bs with a Koala Park. Should be somewhere to take a motorhome or camp. Remarkable Rocks a fair distance from Accommodation.

Yes , ask the The National Park Rangers, they are a friendly lot.

Remarkable Rocks is within the Flinders Chase National Park and Kangaroo Island

Wilderness Retreat is close to the entrance. It is some way from there to Remarkable Rocks, so you would need a car.

You do need to be very careful driving around dusk and in the dark because of the abundant wildlife, much of which sits on the road or near, and seems to be attracted by headlights.

Thank you very much for all the contributions. I'll check with the Park itself to see what we can do.

Hi guys - thank you so much for your posts. I found an accommodation in the national park itself. It's called May's Homestead. I'll write a review about it when I'm back from the trip. One could also stay at the Lighthouse cottages at Cape du Couedic - which is like - right next to Remarkable Rocks. But they require a minimum of 2 nights - and we only have one night to spare. The national park HQ people were very helpful.
