Victoria/South Australia: Admiral’s Arch

This is my favourite photo taken on our road trip in Victoria and South Australia. It’s one of my favourite photos I’ve ever taken.

Admiral’s Arch is in Cape du Couedic in Flinders Chase National Park on Kangaroo Island. It was quite a long walk along the boardwalk that lead down to the arch. We were really tired because it had been a long day of driving, catching the ferry then driving another 100kms to the other end of Kangaroo Island. We almost decided not to continue, not knowing what we were going to look at. A man overheard us talking about not continuing and stopped to tell us it is definitely worth the walk. We decided to continue. The boardwalk got very windy and every step I took down the stairs, I thought about having to walk back up. I really was that tired.

Once we got to the bottom and turned around we saw the arch and thought ‘Wow’. It was stunning. Especially as the sun was setting over the ocean behind the arch. I hardly noticed the walk back up all the steps with the memory of Admiral’s Arch.
