Another of the magical places on Kangaroo Island. The ocean around Admiral's Arch churns and the waves are beautiful. The baby sea lions learn to swim in the tidal pools nearby--and added treat!

It’s a little bit of a hike but not hard but you have never seen anything as beautiful as this natural rock formation at sunset. The true seal colony is precious too. Must see on Kangaroo Island. Part of the two day tour.

The cold blustery winds and rain added to the feeling that these amazing creatures are at home in the Antarctic. The arch is incredible and I could watch the seals all day

This is another place my husband took me for my birthday. A nice place to visit. We have been in kangaroo island for 3 days and we have been doing as much as we can. So I totally recommended

Favourite site visited on KI. Breath talking views accessed via a wooden boardwalk and some steps. Saw lots of seals sheltering and the arch itself was very impressive

Cold, windy and wet but worth every moment. Fascinating to watch the fur seals in the area and the coastal scenery.

Spectacular views from the boardwalk and as you head to the arch - baby seals frolicking in natural swimming pools. Under the imposing arch on the rocks, more seals. Absolutely worth the walk down to the arch.
