The National Parks and Wildlife Service SA has organised tours of bushfire-ravaged Flinders Chase National Park just for Kangaroo Island locals this Sunday, June 28.

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

Flinders Chase National Park was reopened this month but only for tours with accredited guides.

The park could open for self-drive visitation as early as next month, but plans had yet to be announced.

To support the community's bushfire recovery, two free tours are being held on Sunday, June 28 at 10am and 1pm to take locals on a private guided tour of the park with a NPWS ecologist.

The two-hour tours will be by bus via a "safe corridor" to Admirals Arch and Remarkable Rocks.
