Travel to the western section of the island and discover the remarkable Flinders Chase National Park, one of the oldest and most important national parks in South Australia. 

The park incorporates almost 20 per cent of the island and much of it is a Wilderness Protection Area, home to a variety of fauna and flora unique to Kangaroo Island. 
Enjoy the opportunity to walk through the park in search for kangaroos, wallabies and a variety of birdlife. See at close range some of the 10, 000 healthy New Zealand fur seals in their colony at Cape du Couedic and discover the formation of the Remarkable Rocks. These large granite boulders balance dramatically on the cliff edge, which plunges 75 metres into the turbulent Southern Ocean below. 

At Admirals Arch see where the powerful forces of nature have cut through the headland to create this natural geological formation. Admire the Cape du Couedic Lighthouse, established in 1909, in the far south-west corner of the park. 

A delicious gourmet picnic lunch with wine will be served in a secluded bush setting.

During the day koalas can be observed peacefully existing in their treetop habitat.
