Rocky River

Area in Flinders Chase National Park

Once a farm, Rocky River, the area around the park visitors centre, is now a rampant hotbed of wildlife, with kangaroos, wallabies and Cape Barren geese competing for your affections. A slew of good walks launch from behind the visitors centre, including the Rocky River Hike, on which you might spy a platypus (9km loop, three hours). Park fees apply.
