Remarkable Rocks

500 million year old granite has been shaped by the elements to create the intriguing formations that are the Remarkable Rocks.

Perched on a large granite dome that drops abruptly to the crashing surf, the Remarkable Rocks are changing even today. Information boards display pictures of the rocks from the 1800s alongside current photographs, as well as detailed information on the weathering process.

The Remarkable Rocks have been weathered into strange and unique shapes – many visitors enjoy picking out familiar objects in the formations, such as giant chairs and hooks. Enhancing their beauty are the colours in the granite uncovered as the rocks are worn down – blues, blacks and pinks play across the surface of the rocks.

As well as the Remarkable Rocks themselves, the viewing area offers visitors an unobstructed outlook upon the wild Southern Ocean. Migrating whales can be spotted between May and October, and Cape du Couedic and its Heritage Listed Lightstation can be seen from the Western platform.

Practical Info:

Located within Flinders Chase National Park on Kangaroo Island, the Remarkable Rocks are accessed by a 1km return boardwalk from the Remarkable Rocks Car Park – a short drive from the Flinders Chase Visitors Centre. The National Park is open year round with minimal entrance fees.
