This was a great viewing platform for seals - the board walk is easy and the steps down are safe and comfortable - the reward is seeing seals playing in the water and sleeping on the rocks.

This is an amazing coastal experience. As well as a photographer dream, you get to see seals and the southern ocean in all its glory. We only did a day trip here and I'm sure you could visit a few times over a few days...More

Just stunning scenery with sea lions everywhere. Boardwalks make it so easy to get around. A few more seats would be great to take in the views

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
