We enjoyed our visit to Flinders Chase. The staff in the centre were amazingly knowledgeable and friendly. Our kids loved touching all the skins that were all display in the information centre. They also enjoyed digging in the fossil play area. The food was good at the shop too and the wonderful lady who took our orders was the friendliest to all the visitors. We didn't see any koalas in the carpark trees but we did see one on our way out of the park. We managed to see an echinda on our walk too behind the visitor centre. Great place!

Flinders Chase has many interesting features including rock formations, historical lighthouses, and great ocean scenic areas. The visitor center is a great resource + has a very good restaurant serving breakfast and dinner. Best hamburgers we had in Oz! Do not miss Remarkable Rocks - modern sculpture by Nature.

Flinders Chase National Park is very big and takes a long time to explore. I'm just reviewing Admirals Arch, a seal colony and much, much more. You should spend the entire day at the park and about three hours at Admirals Arch. This place is fantastic. Good access via timber walkways, takes about twenty minutes from the car park. There are about seven stops on the way down and each one is breath talking and you think it can't get any better.......but is does, it gets better and better, well worth the walk. The seals slop about on great big rocks, heaps of them and you are only about 10 metres away from them at some points. Its very relaxing, a world of it's own.

1. Allow plenty of time, I suggest about three hours, you may never see the likes of it again
2. Bring bottled water
3. Wear good walking footwear
4. Say “Hello” to everybody you meet on the walkway
5. Take plenty of photos
6. Bring appropriate clothing, can get cold, even in the summer but in winter, can be very cold and windy

After the Great Barrier reef and sourounds, this has got to be the best attraction in Australia and very well kept too. The plant life is low lying and is beautiful when flowering...Great
It's about $9 per adult or $24.50 for family, check out their website for more details but you must see to appreciate

The visitors centre and the park in general were a pleasant way to spend a few hours. You really could spend much more time because the park is quite big and with diverse sights.
