Catching the fun at Flinders Chase

News release
18 March 2015

Over 100 visitors from SA, interstate and overseas were thrilled to get close to native wildlife during the week of activities held at Flinders Chase National Park.

Activities increased the ability of the participants to spot and observe native animals and learn more about their behaviour and unique biology. For some it was the first time they had seen koalas and a few were fortunate enough to hear the males call.

Four different activities provided information about the geology, history, and animal and plant life of the park. The twilight walk enabled visitors to view some of the creatures that emerge at dusk.

‘It was great to see how much people enjoyed the activities’, said Charlotte Atkin, Ranger at Flinders Chase. ‘One couple were so enthusiastic about their experience that they drove from Kingscote the next day to take part again’.
