In keeping with our ethos of animal and environmental conservation, the Seal Bay visitor centre has recently been upgraded and is now entirely environmentally friendly. It is fully solar powered and fresh rain water is collected and used throughout. Organic cleaning materials are used to minimise any potential for pollution and the toilets use a dry composting system.

In the visitor centre you will find brand new interpretive displays with information on the history of sealing, life at sea, the evolution of sea lions, research, and marine pollution. While you’re browsing the displays, you can buy cold drinks and pick up a quality Seal Bay souvenir.

Outside the visitor centre, extensive revegetation is helping protect the stability of the sand dune system, and our self-interpretive boardwalk has been fully renovated, with all new signage.

If you’re planning a picnic lunch, you’ll have to bring your own supplies – food is not sold at Seal Bay.

The facilities available are:

  • toilets, including wheelchair accessible
  • free car and coach parking
  • first aid equipment and public telephone

At Bales Beach picnic area, a very short drive from Seal Bay, you’ll find picnic shelters, free gas barbecues, public toilets and a beautiful beach to explore.
