Home to the third largest sea lion colony in Australia, Seal Bay Conservation Park is one of the most popular tourist destinations on Kangaroo Island, offering a rare nature-based experience with no enclosures or cages confining the animals. Experienced guides can take you into the heart of the sea lion colony, where you can learn how these endangered creatures fish, surf, rest, interact with their pups, and defend their territory. To protect the precarious colony, visitors can visit the beach, where the sea lions rest with their young, as part of a guided tour only. You can take unguided walks along the park's boardwalk at any time.

  • Went as part of the Sealink day tour. It was great to see the seals up close in their natural habitat. Would definitely recommend anyone to come visit seal bay.

Learned a lot about those amazing creature and could see them playing, fighting, and mostly sleeping from very close. Also went on the board walk which allows to see the animals close, great for people with a smaller budget.
  • One of the "Must go" for the island. You will get less than 10metres from the seal.
  • It is a nice place, but we felt disappointed. Maybe expecting much more seals.
