On the western side of Kangaroo Island, Flinders Chase National Park is home to Admirals Arch + the Remarkable Rocks – two of the Islands major attractions.
Admirals Arch is a naturally occurring archway, formed over millions of years by waves crashing against the ocean cliff face. You can often find fur seals + young seal pups, playing on the rocks below the arch. The Remarkable Rocks are a collection of golden orange coloured granite boulders, precariously perched above the sea.
If you’re into hiking there’s the Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail – a 61km five-day trek along the spectacular coastline of south-west Kangaroo Island. For a shorter walk climb the 500 steps at Prospect Hill to reach the highest point on Kangaroo Island for an epic panoramic view.
Kangaroo Island produces a large percentage of Australia’s finest gourmet food + wine so while you’re on the Island be sure to try some of the local cheese and wine, oysters + freshwater Marron!
