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.

There are picnic and barbecue areas at nearby Bales Beach, where you can stop for lunch. A short walk from the picnic grounds will take you to a lookout with excellent views of Cape Gantheaume and the wilderness area.
