Discover the astounding beauty of Flinders Chase National Park on a 4WD full-day adventure. See Admirals Arch, amazing rock formations, a fur seal colony, kangaroos, and more. Then enjoy a delicious chicken picnic lunch with beer, wine, and soft drinks.
What to Expect
Go on a full-day 4WD journey to Flinders Chase National Park, home to a wide variety of plants and animals, and observe some of the most intriguing animal species in their habitat.
Visit Rocky River, site of an impressive visitor centre interpreting many facets of the park and its history. This area is the winter breeding area for the rare Cape Barren goose and home to kangaroos, wallabies, koalas, platypus and many birds.
At Cape du Couedic visit a fur seal colony which now numbers over 20,000 after being decimated by hunting in the early 1800s. These animals can be observed resting on rocks or frolicking in the surf under Admirals Arch, a spectacular grotto. On the headland above is a substantial stone lighthouse where three lightkeepers and their families lived, maintaining a beacon for ships.
A bit further up the coast is another impressive stone structure. Remarkable rocks and huge granite boulders have been carved by rain, salt, and a relentless wind giving them the shape of a surrealist sculpture.
Before exploring more of the island, enjoy a delicious chicken picnic lunch in the bush with mostly local produce. If the weather is good, visit Grassdale, in the heart of Kelly Hill Park, or the secluded pools of Rocky River.
