A short scenic board walk takes you down to spot seals swimming in a protected rock pool and lounging around recovering from their epic swims as the feed at sea. The pool is ‘framed’ by the arch making for a wonderful viewing platform

On a blustery and cold spring day, we ventured off to the arch. Another must see area, you would have thought you were part of a nature documentary. The seals were out in force and it was amazing seeing them in their natural environment. Saw...More

Almost 1.5 hours drive from American River to Flinders Chase National Park, sky became clear with light breezes, very nice Vistor Centre, clean , clear information and helpful. Not like most National Park, we can drive to the scene site, save a lot of walking....More

This was a beautiful spot! So many seats and such beautiful views! Loved it and would highly recommend coming here. You could stand for hours and watch the waves and the seals! Parking is easy and the walk easy too!

Wild seas,seals,bracing sea air. The highlight of a great trip to the Island. Just go early to avoid the crowds.

Absolutely loved it. Seals galore. Stunning rock formations. Easy boardwalk to walk along for wheelchair access to view seals but lots of stairs to get to archway.

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
