Flinders Chase National Park
The highlight of the park for me has to be the Remarkable Rocks. Taking in the views
from the lookout, the sweeping beach and sheer cliffs form a fitting introduction.
View from Remarkable Rocks Lookout
The Remarkable Rocks have to be one of the most enduring spectacles I’ve seen in
my travels across Australia. Not simply because they are one of nature’s wonders,
but for their prominent position upon a headline with stunning coastal views to
both the east and the west.
The Rocks themselves are something to behold. Huge sculptured boulders sit proud
as if placed on a pedestal by nature’s most prominent artist, the elements. With
amazing compositions in every direction this place is a must see for all intrepid
travellers. No more words required here…

Sunset at Remarkable Rocks
West Bay shows off the wilder side of the island as huge swells and strong winds
from the Great Australian Bight continually batter this coastline.

Beaches and Bays of Kangaroo Island
White sand and turquoise seas fringe the island making for some great spots for
swimming or just idling a few hours away. Some of our favourite spots…
Emu Bay, Kangaroo Island
Vivonne Bay, Kangaroo Island
Hanson Bay, Kangaroo Island
Snellings Bay and Middle River
Seal Bay Conservation Park
If you want to get up close and personal with the local wildlife then Seal Bay is
the place to be. Home to around 600 Sea-lions it is Australia’s third largest colony.

The Sea-lions lounge around on the beach for three days then it’s all out fishing
for another three. Not a bad shift pattern when the weather’s so nice.

Cape Willoughby was the first lighthouse to be erected in South Australia. It protects
ships as they navigate through Backstairs Passage between Kangaroo Island and the
mainland. It’s definitely one of the more unusually shaped lighthouses I’ve
seen, partly due to the lantern room being replaced in 1974.

Back to the mainland now and the journey home.
