Welcome to Seal Bay

Welcome to Seal Bay

The stunning views of the Australian sea lion colony and the neighbouring coastline make Seal Bay an essential experience for visitors to Kangaroo Island

Seal Bay

With its unspoiled wilderness and stunning beauty, it is no surprise that Kangaroo Island (KI) is consistently in South Australia’s top ten tourist destinations, as voted on Trip Advisor. And no trip to KI is complete without a visit to Seal Bay.

Seal Bay has been home to an Aus­tralian sea lion pop­u­la­tion for thou­sands of years, and offers one of the most excep­tion­al nature-based expe­ri­ences in the world.

There are no enclo­sures or cages at Seal Bay. Instead, you will be tak­en into the heart of the colony where our expe­ri­enced guides will teach you about these endan­gered ani­mals. If you pre­fer, you can set your own pace on the wheel­chair acces­si­ble 900 metre (return) board­walk which mean­ders through the dunes to a num­ber of view­ing platforms.


Seal Bay Con­ser­va­tion Park is just 45 min­utes from Kan­ga­roo Island’s main town of Kingscote. Dis­cov­er­ing the Aus­tralian sea lion colony in such mag­nif­i­cent wilder­ness makes Seal Bay an unfor­get­table expe­ri­ence. It’s a must do’ when vis­it­ing the island.
