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

It was quite a cool day but the seals could be seen close to the boardwalk. They were frolicking in the water and it is amazing to see them climb over rocks. Their agility on land is surprising. One came right up to us on...More

The arch is a wonder, I could sit and watch the rolling waves all day. So many seals to watch and they were happy to play for us also.

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.

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.

Worth the trip! If you get a chance to get out to Kangaroo Island, I'm sure that everyone will direct you to the Admirals Arch. And it is fantastic. But, truly what we did after was magic. A local suggested that after we make the...More
