Seals

Phillip Island

  • Seal Rock, Phillip Island, Victoria, Australia

Let Phillip Island's resident fur seals entertain the whole family as they frolic around the island's famous Seal Rocks.

In the colonies
Not far from the Penguin Parade at the far south-western tip of Phillip Island is Seal Rocks, home to more than 16,000 fur seals – one of the largest colonies in Australia.

See the numbers grow during the October to December breeding season and watch as they sun themselves on the rocks, feeding their young, wrestling, or flopping into the cool water.

Cruising with the seals
For a closer look, join a wildlife cruise to Seal Rocks. Witness their natural environment first hand as your boat drifts within metres of thousands of fur seals. You might even get to meet these inquisitive creatures as they often approach the boat to see who's visiting.
