Visiting the park

Seal Bay Conservation Park is located about 45 minutes from Kangaroo Island's main town of Kingscote. 

The stunning views of the Australian sea lion colony and the neighbouring coastline are what make Seal Bay an essential experience for visitors to the island.

There is a lot to do at Seal Bay. Tours are run at regular intervals, plus there are picnic and barbecue areas at the nearby Bales Bay where you can stop for lunch. 

A short walk from the picnic grounds will take you to a lookout which offers excellent views of Cape Gantheaume and the wilderness area, or take a short drive to the beautiful Bales Beach where you can relax and enjoy the surrounds in an unspoilt location.
