Flinders Chase National Park

The big attraction on the western end of Kangaroo Island is Flinders Chase National Park.  We went there Tuesday and got to see some New Zealand fur seals at Admiral's Arch.

This colony of seals is a breeding colony and we saw some juveniles and pups.  The Bruny Island cruise in Tasmania was a haul-out of Australian fur seals where they can rest and 98% of that population were male seals.  Neither of these are to be confused with the sea lions which we saw later in our Kangaroo Island trip.:)

 Next up were the Remarkable Rocks.  They were HUGE! 

Our last stop was the Snake Lagoon Walk which ended up being a harder walk then we were planning on after such a busy day already (we started the day with another walk in the park that was quite boring so we didn't deem it "blog-worthy!") but it was a gorgeous walk over rocks and a little bridge ending at the Southern Ocean.
