Flinders Chase National Park is a must for any Kangaroo Island parks adventure. This vast area of wilderness features the iconic Remarkable Rocks, Admirals Arch and a long-nosed fur seal colony. Flinders Chase National Park is recovering naturally following the 2019-20 summer bushfires, which burnt 96 per cent of the park (and the Ravine des Casoars Wilderness Protection Area). Bushfires have played an integral part in shaping the ecology of the Australian landscape for millions of years. Many native plant species are adapted to survive, regenerate and thrive after fire and much of the park is regaining its green cloak of coastal health, mallee woodland and eucalypt forest. Goannas, koalas, eagles, kangaroos and echidnas are regularly spotted in the park. A selection of shorter trails have re-opened, including Ravine Hike (3 hrs, 7km). On this hike you’ll get to explore the Valley of the Cassowaries, named after the now extinct dwarf emu. Take a shaded walk into the valley, then follow the river to a remote sandy beach.
