These incredible granite rocks seem like they could slide right on into the sea like some unlucky visitors have over the years, but our guide assured us they’ve been there for millions of years and aren’t going anywhere anytime soon.
The fantastical shapes seem unlikely and maybe even overdone if you were at Disneyland but Mother Nature has a more vivid imagination than even old Walt, and the incredible curves and waves are the result of millions of years of wind and sea erosion.
Unfortunately when on a half day tour you don’t get to dictate the time of day you go but we were lucky enough to arrive with the rocks to ourselves, albeit not in spectacular sunset lighting. It was a spectacular day though, so there were no complaints from us!
The Remarkable Rocks and Admiralty Arch are in Flinders Chase National Park on Kangaroo Island. They’re both easy to get to in your own car allowing you to stop for spectacular views (and echidnas!) enroute, or else if you’re lucky enough to be stay at the Southern Ocean Lodge, they’ll arrange an excursion for you.
