Create an itinerary including Seal Bay Conservation Park
Home to the third largest sea lion colony in Australia, Seal Bay Conservation Park is one of the most popular tourist destinations on Kangaroo Island, offering a rare nature-based experience with no enclosures or cages confining the animals. Experienced guides can take you into the heart of the sea lion colony, where you can learn how these endangered creatures fish, surf, rest, interact with their pups, and defend their territory. To protect the precarious colony, visitors can visit the beach, where the sea lions rest with their young, as part of a guided tour only. You can take unguided walks along the park's boardwalk at any time. To visit Seal Bay Conservation Park and other attractions in Kangaroo Island, use our Kangaroo Island trip tool.

  • Love this place. Lovely views. Peaceful place for seals and fun to watch them. Was a spur of the moment decision to stop in here so only went on the boardwalk but it was still good, but next time will do the guided tour. I remember my dad taking me on one when I was we younger and being able to be so close to the seals was breath taking.
  • #1 must do if you come to KI. We got a picture perfect day in June in breeding time so lots of activity about the beach and shore. We took the guided tour and it was well worth it. We got very close, legally too!!
