I have a thing for lighthouses. I like the nautical feels and the history behind each lighthouse. It’s pretty interesting if you can climb up the tower too. I insisted that we visited the Cape du Couedic, which is located within the Flinders Chase National Park.
On our second day at Kangaroo Island, we dedicated the entire day to the Flinders Chase National Park. Our first stop was Cape du Couedic, which was really crazy windy and looked great with the blue skies that day. We weren’t able to get up the lighthouse, but it was a great sight to see nevertheless.
Another lighthouse near the area would be the Cape Borda Lighthouse – it has a richer history than this one, and also looks unique as compared to the usual rounded lighthouses we see.
We took around a 2-hour drive into Flinders Chase National Park, and we entered through a side entrance. The side entrance requires drivers to pay the entrance fee and get a entry car sticker at a self-service booth – ran by integrity basically.
I guess because it was a side entrance, instead of a proper gravel road, it was a brown dirt road. It put us through a pretty bumpy ride, but at least the roads were empty for us to take great pictures like these!
