NEW TOUR - Flinders Chase Tour (Recovering from Fires)

AUD $265.00
  • Duration: 5 Hours

HALF DAY TOUR:

Tours departing from the airport or your Kingscote hotel will include a visit to the Flinders Chase NP where the famous Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch are located.

Due to the 2019 fires, the itinerary has slightly changed to allow the areas affected by the fires to regenerate. Fires are part of the "every day” life in Australia and the vegetation is used to them, actually they need the fire to be able to regenerate itself! 

We will take a walk around the famous rock formations of Remarkable Rocks, only 5 million years old! Not far from there we will be able to observe the Long Nosed Furseals ( also know as New Zealand Furseals) playing in the rock pools under Admirals Arch.

At the end of the tour, after seeing Sea Lions, Kangaroos, Koalas, Wallabies and, if you are lucky enough, even an Echidna up close, we will take you back to your hotel, or to the airport/ferry port.

The tour includes coffee breaks with biscuits.                                                                                                                        

Departure Time:

  • 9.00AM - 2.00PM
  • 1.00PM - 6.00PM
