Flinders Chase National Park

Come and explore the vast area of wilderness that makes up the Flinders Chase National Park in Kangaroo Island.

The park features the spectacular Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch as well as a colony of New Zealand fur-seals at Cape du Couedic. A network of walking trails and boardwalks enable you to enjoy the park and its diverse wildlife.

Learn more about the park at the Flinders Chase Visitor Centre and stay in one of the camping and accommodation options located throughout the park.

The nearby Western Kangaroo Island Marine Park also offers plenty of things to do, from diving down to explore the many vessels that came to grief in the hazardous waters, to joining a fishing charter that operate in the area.
