After spending 3 days based at the north east of Kangaroo Island, exploring all the northern beaches and coves, we moved to the south western part of the island to be closer to Flinders Chase National Park, which is renown for its natural rock formations such as Admiral’s Arch and Remarkable Rocks.
We camped at the Western KI Caravan Park and Wildlife Reserve, just next to the entrance of Flinders Chase National Park.  It ended up being a terrific location to base ourselves for some sunset and sunrise photography, and we were able to visit the highlights twice.
Sunset was exquisite behind Admiral’s Arch, Flinders Chase NP.  Can you see the seals?
When we went to Admirals Arch to watch the sun go down we saw heaps of fur seals noisily interacting with each other – you can see at least one seal by the water’s edge, and there were actually 20 fur seals in view when we took this shot. They are just hard to make out as they are so well camouflaged. They are fascinating actually as they move about on the rocks remarkably well considering their bodies are designed for swimming.

Being so close to the National Park, Western KI caravan park was chocked full of wildlife and the absolute highlight was seeing wallabies, koalas, Kangaroo Island kangaroos, fairy wrens, rainbow lorikeets and magpies, all within 5 metres of our caravan.
