Na­ture’s master­pieces

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.
