Seal Bay Conservation Park

One of the major attractions of Kangaroo Island, Seal Bay Conservation Park is the home of the rare Australian Sea Lion.

The Conservation Park contains numerous attractions, such as the Bales Bay Picnic Area, which provides the perfect lunch spot with picnic and barbeque areas. A short walk from the Picnic Area is a lookout offering views of Cape Gantheaume where migrating whales can be seen swimming offshore from May through October. A short drive from the Picnic Area is the Bales Bay beach.

The true attractions of the park however, are the sea lions. A tour is the best way to learn about the sea lions, and to see them up close. Guides take visitors to the colony, relating information about the sea lions, their behaviour, and their conservation. The Seal Bay Experience tour is run several times a day, allowing visitors to walk among the sea lions and marvel at these amazing animals up close. Be sure to bring a camera to capture every moment!

For those who want a little distance between themselves and the seals, the Boardwalk Self-Guided Experience doesn’t disappoint. A short, wheelchair friendly boardwalk, the walk provides an unobstructed view of the sea lion colony and the Southern Ocean behind them. The viewing platform at the end of the boardwalk is a prime whale watching spot. The Sunset Tour is easily the most spectacular tour, taking visitors onto the beach in a single group as the sun sets, casting a golden glow.

Practical Info:

The Seal Bay Conservation Park lies on the southern coast of Kangaroo Island, only a 45 minute drive from Kingscote.
