Flinders Chase National Park

Flinders Chase National Park, Australia
At the west end of Kangaroo Island, this park is a sanctuary for endangered wildlife with some introduced to the island from the mainland. It’s also home to two geological monuments: Remarkable Rocks, naturally sculpted rock formations balanced on a granite outcrop; and Admirals Arch, which displays the ocean’s ability to carve the coastline.
Remarkable Rocks, Kangaroo Island
On the edge of a cliff in Cape Willoughby lies the Remarkable Rocks. Massive granite rocks that form strange shapes. Some have caves built into the rocks that you can climb into. Walk around and in the rocks, all with an amazing view of the water.

Remarkable Rocks
Flinders Chase is one of Australia’s oldest national parks, having been established in 1919. Among the park’s residents are large populations of kangaroos and koalas, and platypus as well, making it a good place to spot some of the country’s most famous locals. Flinders Chase is also the home to several unique geological formations, the most famous being the Remarkable Rocks seen here. The unusual rocks that sit atop a granite outcrop have been sculpted by wind and rain into their distinct shapes. On her Southern Exposure itinerary, Katie will arrange for a guide to take you to Flinders Chase and the island’s other landmarks. If you want to jump in the sea, the opportunity to swim near wild dolphins is a highlight for many visitors.

Flinders Chase National Park
Wind and waves worked their magic here for 500 million years to create these intensely sculptural rocks. For great photos—and to avoid the crowds—hit this park at sunrise or sunset. But if that’s not possible, you can still capture stunning shots of the orange lichen and weathered curves of granite. The park has a wooden boardwalk that’s accessible to disabled visitors and leads to a platform overlooking Cape du Couedic Lighthouse and the lovely Casuarina Islets.
