Project Overview

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.

The 2020 bushfires destroyed the boardwalk, viewing platform, interpretive signage and other facilities at the site.

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 bounce back.

The 2021 stage of works at Remarkable Rocks includes construction of new and upgraded access paths, boardwalk, lookout platforms, amenities, parking areas and information shelter. The boardwalk will be rebuilt with updated materials that are non-slip and more durable for the harsh weather conditions.

A temporary path has been put in place to enable access to the rocks while the boardwalk is constructed.

Upcoming construction activity

Remarkable Rocks

  • Work to rebuild the Remarkable Rocks boardwalk will commence from 11 January – September 2021
  • During the construction, Remarkable Rocks will continue to be accessible to visitors via the temporary path.

Flinders Chase National Park

The surface of the main road through Flinders Chase was impacted by the 2020 bushfire and requires resealing. Roadwork will commence on 25 January 2021. There may be some delays when driving through the park, staff will be able to provide advice on entry.
