FLINDERS CHASE NATIONAL PARK

 

Flinders Chase National Park is now open to the public

Flinders Chase National Park is home to beautiful coastal landscapes and iconic features such as Remarkable Rocks, Admirals Arch and Cape du Couedic Lighthouse.

The majority of the park and much of its infrastructure was burnt in the January 2020 bushfire. The good news is that green shoots are emerging from vegetation in the park and there are native animal sightings in the area such as goannas, eagles, kangaroos and KI echidnas.

You can explore the iconic drawcards of Remarkable Rocks, Admirals Arch, Cape du Couedic Lighthouse and Weirs Cove. You’ll find car parking at each of these sites.

West Bay (including the campground) and Shackle Road are open (subject to seasonal closures). Note: West Bay Road and the campground are 4WD accessible only.

Cape Borda Lightstation is open for self-guided tours.

 

Pay online before you go

 

Entry and camping fees apply and can be paid online. Internet/phone connection is very limited at Flinders Chase National Park, Ravine des Casoars Wilderness Protection Area and Cape Borda so it’s best to pay before you go.

Remember:

The park has limited toilets, and there is no food or drink available for purchase throughout the park. Your last stop before the Park for food, drinks and fuel is Vivonne Bay.

Remain on roads and trails to give the fragile environment time and space for regeneration and recovery. The roads within Flinders Chase are not suitable for caravans and large trailers.

The reopening of Flinders Chase National Park follows the devastating 2019-20 summer bushfires, which burnt 96 per cent of the park (and the Ravine Des Casoars Wilderness Protection Area).
