Seal Bay has been home to an Australian sea lion population for thousands of years and offers one of the most exceptional nature-based experiences in the world.
The majority of visitors to Kangaroo Island visit Seal Bay and along with Flinders Chase National Park, is one of the island’s top attractions.
It was considered timely in light of the opportunity to reimagine the connected parks and wilderness areas of western Kangaroo Island to also consider what could be reimagined at Seal Bay to integrate all of these locations into a world-class, cohesive and authentic Kangaroo Island experience as part of the Reimage KI engagement.
Following the Reimagine KI engagement process, two community framework documents have now been released, one for Western KI Parks and one for Seal Bay, that summarise the community vision, guiding principles, opportunities and ideas for future-focused, quality visitor experiences within Kangaroo Island parks. To find out more visit Reimagine KI.
The recommendations from the community reference documents, along with ecological considerations and feasibility studies, will help inform future upgrades at Seal Bay.
