If the majesty of nature amazes you, you will marvel at the size and creation of the Remarkable Rocks on Kangaroo Island.

Driving through Flinders Chase National Park on Kangaroo Island at the western end, there is a turnoff to the remarkable rocks.
Extensive boardwalks make for easy access even for the disabled, right to the mouth of the remarkable rocks.

Perched high atop a large round boulder, jutting out into the sea lies a strange collection of rocks. Windswept, huge and strangely shaped, they have an eerie presence.

There are warning signs to stay close to the rocks and several people have slipped off and met their fate by falling on the rocks or into the sea.

Bucketing down rain
The day we visited it was raining heavily and we took shelter inside the caves of the rocks. It was still pretty magical, sitting inside the cave, looking out the entrance across the shores and into the ocean.

On a sunny day, the views would be pretty special.

From Admirals Arch lookout, you can see the funny shaped boulders and rocks of the remarkable rocks in the distance.
