NATIONAL Parks and Wildlife Service SA has organised tours of bushfire-ravaged Flinders Chase National Park for Kangaroo Island locals for thisSunday (June 28).

The service knows there is interest from KI locals to see and understand first-hand the park's ongoing recovery from the devastating bushfires.

Flinders Chase National Park was reopened earlier this month, but only for tours with accredited guides. The park is set to open for self-drive visitation from July 4.

The two free tours are being held at 10am and 1pm on Sunday to take locals on a private guided tour of the park with a NPWS ecologist.

The tours, limited to 20 registrations each to meet COVID-19 guidelines, will be by bus via a "safe corridor" to Admirals Arch and Remarkable Rocks.
