Regions of Kangaroo Island
Kangaroo Island Information
Seal Bay & Little Sahara - Kangaroo Island
is recommended you take a full day to visit Seal Bay and Little Sahara
on Kangaroo Island, and to enjoy what you will see on this tour. If
your visit to Kangaroo Island allows the time, schedule your day to
visit Murray Lagoon and D'Estrees Bay late in the day, or early evening
on the way back. The array of wildlife in the cool of the day will be
a most rewarding experience for you.
You depart from Kingscote along the Playford Highway to the Airport intersection, then follow the Birchmore Highway to Seal Bay. Allow 45 minute to reach Seal Bay.
If you are leaving from American River and Penneshaw travel past the Kingscote Airport, turning left on to the Birchmore Highway. You should allow 55 minutes from American River, and just over one hour from Penneshaw to reach Seal Bay.
Today, these rare sea lions are protected by law. Under the guidance of a National Parks Ranger, you can walk on the beach to within a few metres of the resting sea lions, or alternatively view them from the boardwalk. Beach tours run regularly throughout the day.
This is an area of spectacular vivid white sand dunes, surrounded by natural bush vegetation. Climbing over the first ridge, you are confronted by a second and much higher dune, which when scaled, does not expose the coast as one would expect, but more sand dunes flanked by natural Australian bushland.
Take a dottle of water with you if you intend to climb to the top of the razor back ridges in the heat of the day. In the summer months the shade of the Australian bush is much more preferable.
Little Sahara desert and return to the South Coast Road,
turning right, towards Kingscote & travelling 14 km, then turn right
into Seagers Road for Murray Lagoon. Follow the graded road to the entrance
to the Lagoon area.
