Named after the hoards of Kangaroos found by Mathew Flinders on his journey in 1803, Kangaroo Island is a tranquil and gorgeous island just 13 km off the coast of South Australia.
The southern coast of Kangaroo Island is home to an abundance of seals and sea lions. They can be seen resting in the sun and nursing their young after feeding for three days at sea.
Located at the western end of Kangaroo Island, Flinders Chase National Park is one of Australia’s largest parks covering 74,000 hectares of untouched bushland. The park is home to a variety of fauna, and considered to be one of South Australia’s most significant parks due to its natural state and wildlife.
A twenty minute drive south from the resort will take you to Kirkpatrick, home to an impressive natural formation which appears to be a cluster of precariously balanced boulders. This extraordinary geological feature is aptly named the Remarkable Rocks, and is located within the Flinders Chase National Park. Nearby is Admiral’s Arch, another of nature’s wild sculptures, where fur seals can be seen frolicking in the waters or resting on the rocks.
