Kangaroo Island’s abundance of wildlife and natural wonders attract hundreds of thousands tourists each year, one of those natural attractions is the Admiral’s Arch, located on the island’s western coast.
The Admiral’s Arch is a remnant of the ancient cave that was broken by ocean waves and transformed into a natural bridge. Stalactites are still hanging off the top of the arch as the evidence of its unusual history. The arch presents a geological significance and designated as a geological monument.
As a bonus, this place is quite popular among New Zealand’s fur-seals – if you’re lucky, you will see a lot of them playing, feeding or resting on the rocky base of the arch. Please do not approach them and stay on viewing platform.
The Arch is located in the Flinders Chase National Park and easily accessible by a boardwalk that starts near the Cape Du Couedic lighthouse. There are several viewing platforms along the walk with one platform located at the base of the arch.
