Overview

Due to bush fire activity in January 2020 on Kangaroo Island this attraction is now closed until further notice. There are many other things to see and do on Kangaroo Island - check out our Travel Blog for suggestions!

Admirals Arch is a natural rock arch created by amazing forces of nature It's situated within Flinders Chase National Park on Kangaroo Island. You can take an easy walk on a boardwalk around the cliff face. This leads you to a viewing platform overlooking the arch. The arch is sculpted by weathering and erosion from the sea over thousands of years.

Fur-seals often play among the rocks. These dark brown seals feed at sea but return to land to rest and breed. In summer, each of the large males establishes a territory with a number of females. You can often see Fur-seal pups playing near the rock pools beneath the arch.

There is an interpretive centre at the park with more information, maps and ideas for walking and viewing wildlife nearby.

You can also stay nearby in the heritage lighthouse cottages at Cape de Couedic. These have been beautifully restored with modern facilities.
