Kangaroo Island also plays host to natural works of art, with Remarkable Rocks earning their name from the unique shapes and colours sculpted by wind and sea over millions of years. The most marvellous aspect of the rocks is their colour, which changes depending on the time of day and the viewing angle. There is always something new to see, no matter how many times you visit Remarkable Rocks.
Admiral’s Arch is another unique coastal formation. Looking through the arch towards the sea, you’ll encounter a view of crashing waves hurling snowlike foam and rainbow sprays of water. When the time and the weather are right, you’ll see beautiful sunrays and a spectacular show put on by the playful sea lions. With the sun touching the horizon and the onset of twilight, this is when the island is at its most beautiful.
Another stunning location to drink in the ever-changing seascape is Cape du Coucedic, located at the southwestern tip of the island. Standing atop the cliff is Cape du Couedic Lighthouse, constructed in 1909. Consisting of over 2,000 pieces of stone, this beacon has withstood over a century of wind and storms and continues guiding those who need it to safety.
