“Don't under-estimate Remarkable Rocks”
Reviewed February 11, 2014

Make sure you get up close and personal at Remarkable Rocks - that's when you find out how remarkable they really are! Oh, and the warning signs are really small - if you can read them, you're probably risking your life! And don't forget Weir's Cottage on the way back, to complete the experience.

“Fabulous flinders”
Reviewed February 4, 2014 via mobile

Loved it here from the lighthouse to the seals to the landscape, we had a car so could take our time around everything this National Park had to offer and it had a lot. We started at the information centre as you pay to go in and the lady advised us of roads to take - note some are unsealed and too far to go in a hire car.
Loads of seals playing in the surf, lying on the rocks. Had lunch near in a lovely spot with no one else around, fabulous.
The remarkable rocks were well.... Remarkable! Thought about going to Koala sanctuary but on our return we stopped at the visitor centre again and there above our heads in the car park was our very first koala and baby koala. That started koala watch for the drive back and once you've seen 1 well you know how it goes!!! Go to Flinders Chase you will not be disappointed

“Camp site offered just what we were after.”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

Travelling with a caravan this year we loved the seclusion of the individual van sites yet a good shower and toilet block was only a minute or so away. BBqs near by if required. Note that there is no power or water on site.

“Nature at its best”
Reviewed January 23, 2014 via mobile

Beautiful spot, there are other places like it in Australia, but it has a certain wildness for so close to a capital city, in the space of 48 hours with out really trying we spotted koalas, kangaroo, wallaby, possum, goanna, 3 pods of dolphins, new Zealand and Australian seals, lots of bird life and pretty native flowers. Unsealed roads were rougher than expected, west bay road passable in a sedan but can't say it did my car any good, I'd recommend a light 4wd / car with high clearance the road is very corrugated, the last few kms to cape borda light house are also rough. Ravine des casoars hike was beautiful, worth climbing the hill on the southern side of the beach to see the view to the north, high light of our trip so far. Ravine road was smooth enough.

Nothing to dislike - the views and seals and truly remarkable rocks were all fantastic and well worth the drive.
