National & Conservation Parks
National and Conservation parks cover more than one third of the total area of land on Kangaroo Island. From very early in Kangaroo Island's European settlement, National and Conservation parks were declared across the Island, in recognition of the importance of preserving the unique plant and wildlife species that exist on Kangaroo Island. Some of these species of plants and animals are either threatened or exist nowhere else in Australia.
Kangaroo Island's four major parks are Flinders Chase National Park, famous for the must see Remarkable Rocks, Admirals Arch and walking trails, Kelly Hill Conservation Park for its magnificent limestone caves and hike, Seal Bay Conservation Park where visitors can walk among the third largest and only accessible colony of Australia Sea lions and Cape Willoughby Conservation Park where tours of the first lighthouse in South Australia are held.
National Parks provide the opportunity to access spectacular coastline, unique geological formations, be inspired by history and discover wildlife in the wild.
