The Remarkable Rocks, South Australia

Stock Photography By Christina Jablonski

The Remarkable Rocks are one of the great attractions of Kangaroo Island in South Australia. Balanced on the cliff top by the Great Australian Bight, those granite rocks acquired their strange surreal shapes because they were exposed to the harsh southern winds and rains for millenia. A species of red lichens grows on the rocks mostly on the ocean side of the cliff and give them the orange colour.
