Flinders Chase Nation­al Park is recov­er­ing nat­u­ral­ly fol­low­ing the 2019–20 sum­mer bush­fires, which burnt 96 per cent of the park (and the Ravine des Casoars Wilder­ness Pro­tec­tion Area). Bush­fires have played an inte­gral part in shap­ing the ecol­o­gy of the Aus­tralian land­scape for mil­lions of years. Many native plant species are adapt­ed to sur­vive, regen­er­ate and thrive after fire and much of the park is regain­ing its green cloak of coastal health, mallee wood­land and euca­lypt for­est. Goan­nas, koalas, eagles, kan­ga­roos and echid­nas are reg­u­lar­ly spot­ted in the park.

A selec­tion of short­er trails have re-opened, includ­ing the Ravine des Casoars. This trail takes the walker through Ravine Des Casoars Wilderness Protection Area. Hike along a creek to the end where you will find a beautiful beach and caves to explore. It is a 7km/3 hour walk.

Entry fees apply. There is a 24-hour wifi pay­ment hotspot at Rocky Riv­er, 5 km inside the park entrance, but giv­en the remote loca­tion the con­nec­tion can be slow and it’s best to pay day entry before you go. NPWS staff are in the park dai­ly from 9am to 5pm. The park has lim­it­ed toi­lets, there is no food or drink avail­able for pur­chase through­out the park.

Pets, includ­ing dogs, are not per­mit­ted in the park.
