Admirals Arch

From $9

Details
Witness the amazing forces of nature at Admirals Arch, located at Cape du Couedic in Flinders Chase National Park. A viewing platform and boardwalk around a cliff face leads visitors to this spectacular natural rock arch known as Admiral's Arch, sculpted by weathering and erosion from the sea over thousands of years. Observe a colony of New Zealand fur-seals on the rock platforms around Admirals Arch from the viewing platforms and boardwalk. These dark brown seals feed at sea but return to land to rest and breed. Breeding occurs in summer when males establish territorial areas encompassing a number of females. Fur-seal pups can often be seen playing near the rock pools beneath the arch. Admirals Arch can be easily reached from the boardwalk at Cape du Couedic. Lighthouse heritage accommodation is available nearby.
