Flinders Chase National Park information
Occupying the western end of Kangaroo Island, Flinders Chase National Park is one of SA’s top national parks. Much of the park is mallee scrub, but there are some beautiful, tall sugar-gum forests, particularly around Rocky River and the Ravine des Casoars, 5km south of Cape Borda. Sadly, around 100,000 acres of bush were burned out by bushfires in 2007. Many walking tracks and campsites are closed for rehabilitation, but there’s still plenty to see and do. Contact the park visitors centre or DEH in Kingscote for updates on closures.
