    Remarkable Rocks

    November 2, 2018 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 14 °C

    Today was so beautiful I had to do 2 posts.
    We went through Flindlers Chase National Park. It is huge - well over 300 sq km of rugged wilderness and landmarks.
    We went to a place called Remarkable Rocks. It is granite from the ice age on the ocean that has been weathered over the thousands of years. The wind was blowing over 50 km/hr. It was hard to stand and walk on the rocks.
    Our next area to explore was Cape du Couedic Lighthouse and Admirals Arch. If I thought it was windy at Remarkable Rocks, at this southern point of Kangaroo Island it was really blowing. Walking up and down the boardwalk and stairs was a good workout in the wind. This area is so remote that the lighthouse was only accessible by boat every 3 months. The Arch has been formed by the erosion of the pounding sea.
    A long but fantastic day.
