We look for­ward to wel­com­ing you to Seal Bay!

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 the Aus­tralian sea lion. There is nowhere else in the world where you can lis­ten to an expert give you their unique insight into how these endan­gered ani­mals hunt, surf, rest, inter­act with their pups and defend their territory.

This is a 45 minute walk­ing tour you’ll fol­low a board­walk through the dune sys­tem to the beach, and on the way you will have breath­tak­ing views of the colony and the majes­tic coastline.

Our guides have made study­ing the mag­nif­i­cent Aus­tralian sea lion their life’s work. A guid­ed beach tour does not fol­low a stan­dard­ised script. Instead your guide will be inter­pret­ing sea lion behav­iour and what’s hap­pen­ing in the colony – at that very moment. They’ll make sure every­one is safe and keep you at an appro­pri­ate dis­tance (no clos­er than 10 metres), mak­ing sure the sea lions do not feel threat­ened by human presence.

This is a tru­ly excep­tion­al wildlife expe­ri­ence not to be missed. The fee for the Seal Bay Expe­ri­ence also includes access to the board­walk so you are able to see every­thing Seal Bay has to offer
