Things to do

Remarkable Rocks

Visit the exquisite naturally sculptured Remarkable Rocks whose formation lies atop a remnant granite outcrop.

Admirals Arch

Located at Cape du Couedic, Admirals Arch is a beautiful natural rock arch that displays the power of the ocean and weathering which has shaped the coastline.

View wildlife

Observe a colony of New Zealand fur-seals on the rock platforms around Admirals Arch from the viewing platforms and boardwalk. These dark brown seals feed at sea but return to land to rest and breed. Breeding occurs in summer when males establish territorial areas encompassing a number of females. Fur-seal pups can often be seen playing near the rock pools beneath the arch.

Lighthouse tours

Take a guided tour of the Cape Borda Lightstation or guide your own way through the historic lightkeepers' cemetery and original landing site at Harveys Return.

Bushwalking

Walk, hike or trek along the network of trails throughout the park. 

Camping

Camp under the stars at one of the campgrounds located at Harveys Return, Snake Lagoon, Rocky River or West Bay.

Stay in a lighthouse keeper's cottage

Live the past and stay in a heritage-listed lightkeeper's cottage at Cape du Couedic or Cape Borda. Accommodation is also available in Mays Homestead and Postmans Cottage near the Flinders Chase Visitor Centre.
