Get up-close with Australian sea lions

Australian sea lions are among the rarest breed of their kind. The Seal Bay Conservation Park in Kangaroo Island hosts the third largest colony of this species in the world, and is where groups of them come to sunbathe on the sand. The seals fish out at sea for three days, so they come here for some much-needed R&R.

To see these extraordinary creatures in Seal Bay, you can either take a tour (during which a guide will tell you about the seals and their habits) or you can see them for yourself from the Don Dixon Boardwalk on the beach.
