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.

Often windy, with heaving seas. The Arch is worth taking a look. Even better at sunset. Seals are visible in rock pools enjoying the water. Not to be missed.

Stunning spot and an absolute marvel. Go here to see seals in their natural environment, swimming and having fun with each other. Great views and just an absolutely stunning location not to be missed.

Don't forget to pay your entry before you drive into the park, but a definite must do when on KI. Some great walks in the surrounds and a truly spectacular natural feature. Take your time and go to the lookouts and watch the (many) seals...More

Certainly worth the experience even though we visited this attraction during a rain storm. Still managed to see plenty of seals on the way down to Admirals Arch. The boardwalk and steps were very easy to navigate even in driving rain and wind. Unfortunately our...More
