One of the most distinctive images of this island, widely regarded as Australia's Galapagos, is Remarkable Rocks in the Flinders Chase National Park. Perched above the sea, the impressive rocks form what appears to be a cluster of precariously balanced granite boulders. This stunning work of nature has been shaped by the erosive forces of wind, sea spray and rain over some 500 million years. The golden orange lichen covering some of the rocks offers visitors wonderful photo opportunities at different times of the day. Interpretation signs share the story of how these intriguing rocks were formed.
