Kangaroo Island – Seal Bay

 Kangaroo Island doesn’t look exciting at first impression. But that quickly changes.  As found by Ann Rickard food and travel writer.

The drive from the tiny airport reveals a place of dry, brown Aussie bush and not much else.  When we first arrived for a weekend of wining and dining at the Kangaroo Island FEASttival (more about that in another blog) I didn’t see any beauty in the island.

When I left 2 days later I was awed by the rugged, natural beauty all over the island.

 It was all wild, pristine beaches, towering cliffs, and sand dunes so vast, you could be in the middle of the Sahara.

At Seal Bay we walked down a long board walk with seals and sea lions basking beneath us.  These seals go into the ocean to swim for three days at a time.


They dive and fish and eat and then come back to waddle up the beach to sleep it all off for days (a bit like me when I go out for a big dinner.)

Seal Bay is a conservation park and the sea lions are top dog. 

You must stay on the board walk and watch but you’re right there with them.  It’s perfect to snap great photos…just like mine.
