“Beautiful photo ops!”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

We stopped here on our last day on KI and spent at least 2 hours climbing the Remarkable Rocks and watching the seals that make Admirals Arch their home. Our 7 and 9 yr old daughters loved "rock climbing" and posing for pictures in all of the nooks and crannies that nature has carved out over millions of years. Don't miss Flinders Chase on your trip to KI. Entrance fee to the park is very reasonable, considering all there is to see and do ($27 for our family).

“Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch are fun to see”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

My wife and I visited Kangaroo Island in February 2014. We bought our Kangaroo Island Pass at the Park. As part of the pass you are allowed to visit Flinders Chase National Park all you want. The day we went we visited Remarkable Rocks, Admiral's Arch and Wier's Cove. Remarkable Rocks are very interesting. They make for great picture taking opportunities and that is exactly what we did. We probably spent 45 minutes there. We then went om to Admiral's Arch. We walked down the boardwalk and on down to the arch. We took many pictures of the arch and the New Zealand Fur Seals.. We were there for about 45 minutes. We then drove down to Wier's cove. It is a pretty bay with crystal Blue water. We took a couple of photos here. On the way out of the Park we stopped at the visitors center and had lunch. The food was good here. All in all we spent a little more than 1/2 a day in the park. Nice.

“Don't forget the quiet corners!”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

Remarkable Rocks is a good place and gets all the press.

But there is a lot more to this national park. Several good walks. Try Snake Lagoon for a start - following a scenic creek (kangaroos around any maybe platypus if you are lucky) down to a lovely beach with caves in the hill above.

There are other walks and places to see wildlife (including platypus) as well.

“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.
