Seal Bay Conservation Park
Seal Bay Conservation Park Home to one of Australia’s largest sea lion colonies, this park invites visitors to walk through the dunes and view these magnificent creatures in the wild. Small, guided 45-minute tours venture among these eared seals (Neophoca cinerea). One of the world’s rarest species, the endangered Australian sea lions can use their back flippers to walk—or, uh, lurch—on land, unlike “true” seals. Including the estimated 1,000 residents of this colony, around 14,700 Australian sea lions still exist in the country.
