A Lot of fun and conversations. Easy, Enjoyable, very accessible for all ages. The amount of Fur Seals were outstanding - The smell was not the best, but worth it. The views were just stunning as we were leaving just shortly before sunset. Stunning !!

Lots to see here - Remarkable Rocks - unique. Admiral's Arch at sunset with a huge seal colony in close proximity to the board walk - just amazing. Large rock island off shore, excellent boardwalk down to Admirals Arch takes you down the cliff face and you can watch sea lions at play in rock pools & lying around right up to the boardwalk. Some seals also on rock platform under the arch. Also see Weir Cove where they had to hoist supplies up the cutting in the cliff every 3 months before there were roads... also ruined building here. Seal colony very pongy - one lady had a hankie covering her nose as she passed by. This is jointly the best thing we saw at KI with Paul's Place and the Waves & Wildlife Cabins - plus Stokes Bay beach access through the secret rock tunnel. Captivating KI...

If you don't want to do much on Kangaroo Island but relax, this is absolutely one thing you must do!! The Admirals Arch is magnificent and majestic - words and pictures just don't do it justice - it has to be experienced. And seeing so many fur seals so close was so interesting and entertaining - we stayed for ages. We had prior advice from a local who said to come here for the fur seals and not to go to Seal Bay where they charge heaps for the same thing. We were told the locals feel that tourists are being ripped off when they go to Seal Bay, as they can be seen just as clearly at Admirals Arch. So true.

I was hesitating going to Remarkable Rocks as the kids were hungry, but thought we'd take a quick look - WOW!! Not to be missed!! Really remarkable - kids forgot their hunger and had a fantastic time. Just be very careful - really little ones need to be fully supervised close to those edges. Another Must Do!!

The views are simply magical. Spend some time here and just take it all in. I couldn't stop clicking my camera. It's nature at its finest. We saw these rock formations that look tiny from a distance. Once you arrive up close, you see how huge and magnificent they really are. They sit above a teal green ocean. It makes you wonder how they got there. We climbed on them and took awesome photos. We also saw Admirals Arch where hundreds of seals were sleeping, swimming, and playing in the water. Everything was so peaceful. I do want to mention that you do quite a bit of walking to get to these areas.
