While the sea lions can be seen with the naked eye, zooming in takes the experience to a new level. Bear in mind, you are viewing one of the rarest breeds of seals found anywhere in the world, and at one of the only locations on the Australian mainland! These beautiful creatures are on the endangered list; but this stunning location serves them well and protects them from predators as they breed and have their pups. And how perfect for us to be able to observe pups, their mothers and the big bulls going about their lives naturally from the viewing platform on the cliff about fifty metres up from them, and they are surrounded by turquoise blue swirling waters and gorgeous cliffs. Bird watching is also fascinating here. Please don’t miss this opportunity, a South Australian marvel of nature.

We watched the sea lions playing, and sleeping, they looked very relaxed.
The colour of the water is amazing.
Definately worth the drive, and even though it's 20km's or so of dirt road, it was easy driving. Highly recommend a visit.

Largest Australian fur seal population in one place. Beautiful coast line and ocean view. Some won’t like the dirt road but it was in great condition .

We always stop here while in the area, the seals wallowing around can be watched for hours. It can get cold and if the wind is blowing toward the lookout the stench is unbelievable. There are a couple of good fishing spots on the way on the ocean side.

So beautiful. Families of sealions lazing about on the rocks in the sun, against an azure sea. Black seals swimming and cavorting in the rock pools.
