Upgrades are now finished at one of Kangaroo Island’s most iconic sites, Remarkable Rocks, with the completion of its accessible boardwalk.
The 2020 bushfires destroyed all visitor facilties at this site, with the boardwalk, viewing platform, interpretive signage and other facilities all needing to be rebuilt.
Perched above the sea in Flinders Chase National Park, the impressive Remarkable Rocks form what appear to be a cluster of precariously balanced granite boulders.This stunning work of nature has been shaped by the erosive forces of wind, sea spray and rain over some 500 million years.
Rebuilding the infrastructure destroyed by the bushfires will provide a timely boost to the local economy and help Kangaroo Island’s nature-based tourism industry continue to bounce back.
