This island is about 155km and 55km wide. 3rd largest island of Australia which was discovered in 1802 by Matthew Flinders. Part of the island is conserved in National park and thus, making an ideal place to see wildlife.

Seal bay is part of Kangeroo island tour. It was certainly a very good experience in getting up close and personal with the seals.Watching them dashing along the waves as they come on shores.
I was there in July..and it was ...freezing cold at the beach!!
Oh, not to forget to obey the instructions from the rangers!
