Nice sealed roads to the so called main attractions to bring there bus loads of people. Our intention was to explore the park by walking but we found out that with non 4 WD you spend hours for hours on the most miserable streets we found in South Australia to come to the starting points of the walking tracks. Even on our 2 weeks outbacktour the smallest tracks have been in better conditions.

We saw an abundant amount of sea lions. The remarkable rocks were brilliant and the visitor place was excellent. Simply a must. And the walks are easy and accessible for all.

We enjoyed doing one day of the five day walk. The owner of the caravan park we stayed in (Western KI) recommended the most picturesque section 16 kms was enough for a day for us and that gave us a good sense of the island, its cliffs and the magnificent southern ocean. Well worth doing.

Amazing as ever, went nice and early when not many people around and got some great photos. The kids enjoyed running around and climbing all over the rocks. The view is incredible and the sea mesmerising, would do it all again in a heart beat.

We did a day trip to the Cape du Couedic part of the national park - and loved every moment. Beautiful landscape, on a clear sunny day, good amenities. The islets, Admirals Arch, lighthouse, Weir Cove and Remarkable Rocks were all easily seen/accessed by car and foot. Parking was fine. With young kids, we spent about three hours in the park in the Cape area, we unfortunately didn't have time to go elsewhere in the park. The roads in this area were great, all sealed except for a short drive down to Weirs Cove. The staff were helpful.

Highly recommend a visit if you get to Kangaroo Island.
