Flinders Chase is a national park that’s bitten off the east tip of Kangaroo Island, and it’s a repository of weird rocks, aww-inspiring animals, and lots of greenery. Our first stop, after harassing the very nice lady at the Visitors Centre, was Cape du Couedic.
The first thing that greets you at Cape du Couedic is a sign describing its gruesome shipwreck, where 32 people perished and the survivors were found with rotting penguins tied around their necks. Naturally, I didn’t get my hopes up about the place. But after making our way down the wooden boardwalk to the craggy cliffs’ edge, we were greeted with the sight of a bunch of lazy mama seals ignoring their adventurous, bickering babies as they tumbled around on the rocks below. It was easily one of my top experiences in Australia so far.
