Seal Bay

National Parks and Reserves

As Kangaroo Island’s premier tourist attraction, the award winning Seal Bay offers visitors an unforgettable wildlife experience.

Learn about the amazing lives of these endangered animals as our experienced guides take you on a tour into the colony. There will be plenty of time for photos as the sea lions shelter in the dunes, rest on the sand or surf in the ocean.

Set your own pace on our 800 metre wheelchair accessible boardwalk which meanders through the dunes to a number of viewing platforms.

Seal Bay is a 45-minute drive from Kingscote. Beach access to the sea-lion colony is by guided tour only but sea-lions can also be seen from the self-guided boardwalk. Special twilight tours are also available in summer school holidays. Entry tickets can be purchased from Seal Bay Visitor Information Centre, where you can learn more about these fascinating creatures and also browse for souvenirs.

Nearby is Bales Bay picnic area where picnic shelters, gas barbecues and toilets are provided.

*Please note during extreme weather events the park may be closed for guests safety. Visit our website for further details.
