Sensational site. You must walk ALL the day down the timber walkway to see THE ARCH. AMAZING!! Plenty of seals of different types and heaps of seabirds. Just magic.

This is a wonderful experience. The Arch is good and walkway well maintained. The highlight is actually the seal colony resting, playing and nursing on the rocks below. We spent 10min viewing the arch but 1.5hrs watching the seals.

A ten minute walk, down several steps and wooden pathway from the parking lot. Great photo opportunity! Don't miss the fur seals frolicking in the natural pond!!!

After the very long walk which was so worth it but hard going I was just blown away by the view and I’m so glad I made the effort to do it, well worth it actually went in 2019 but it wouldn’t let me go that far back on the calendar for some reason!!!

This amazing area is part of the Flinders Chase National Park and is a brilliant place to visit. Firstly there is plenty of parking and the boardwalk to the Arch makes the walk easy and safe but for the mobility challenged there are a number of stairs to negotiate. Apart from the beauty of the Arch itself we were treated to a show put on by the seals that had come ashore including some curious seal pups playing up for the human audience.

A beautiful place to visit. It’s an easy walk on the boardwalk to the arch. Stop and take in the views it’s well worth stopping just before going down the last section and watching the seals active in their environment.

Well worth the drive to explore this area.
The boardwalk is easy walking down to several viewing platforms.
The lowest platform is the best to view the arch.
We were delighted to see so many seals frolicking in the pools below or resting on the rocks.
A magnificent natural wonder.

This is a worthwhile visit. Be aware that it is in a National Park and requires an entry fee ($12.50). Rather than line up at the entry office as we did, you can evidently buy online beforehand. Stunning scenery. The walk down into the arch is about 60/80 steps. But you can always just take in the magnificent view of the powerful waves against the rocks from above and marvel at the incredible blue of the sea near the shore. So glad we took the drive.

It was a rough windy day and the surf was crashing over the rocks quite spectacularly. The Arch itself is quite unique, but the seals and surrounding coastal cliffs are equally worth the visit. You need to buy a National Park pass but this is easily done online beforehand. Some stunning views across the landscape too as you drive between the Parks office and the lighthouse.

The view is fantastic, can be very windy make sure to wear something comfortable and can not easy blown by the wind. The view of the sea and island is very relaxing if you are nature's lover. Few minutes walk make sure to wear something comfortable. Did not see any shop neither toilet close by. Lucky I went to the toilet near the lighthouse (it is old style you can see a big hole)
