“Beautiful location”
Reviewed January 19, 2014 via mobile

Loved this natural location.

Especially liked seeing the fur seals fighting the waves as the tried to get on the rocks.
Plenty of young fur seals suckling and exploring the habitat whilst mum basked in the sun.

Must go to attraction.

“Beautiful Scenery and Wildlife”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

Admirals Arch is a must see on KI. It is easy to wander through the boardwalks to look at the seals and rock formations. The walk is great to do on the same day as Remarkable Rocks. It gives a great perspective for the KI coast.

“Australia's coastline at it's best.”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

Great spot and a must see on Kangaroo Island. The natural beauty of the Australian coastline with amazing cliffs, islands, wind blown landscape and then an amazing boardwalk down to this stunning Arch with Australian Sea Lions basking under the rocks right in front of you. A photographers delight. A National Parks permit is required and can be picked up at the Flinders Chase National Park office for about $9 per person.
Kangaroo Island is a large island and if you are staying at Kingscote or Penneshaw, make sure you leave early from your accommodation and drive straight here, then make your way back and see the Remarkable Rocks, Kelly Caves and do the Seal Bay tour. It's approximately 155klms from Penneshaw to Admirals Arch. Our rental car couldn't be driven after dusk, so make sure you leave yourself plenty of time to return to your accommodation.

“Stunning Beauty”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

Get your camera ready as you approach this spot on Kangaroo Island. The erosion the water has caused makes this a photographers dream. Make sure you look for the seals hanging out on the rocks.
