Our exclusive Sunset Tour gives you the opportunity to walk amongst the Australian sea lions in their colony in the early evening as the sun sets the beach in golden light.

You will be the only group in the colony at this magical time of day, with ample time to wander the Park at leisure with your experienced guide and soak in the atmosphere in the bedroom of one of the rarest seals on earth.
