Only a 5 min walk off SH1 to see this one-of-a-kind finding. Numerous seal pups swimming around beneath the waterfall and quite photogenic. How they climbed up the creek to this spot is amazing! A real nature treat!

This is a unique experience. Go at a quiet time as it can get overrun by people, but you can watch seal pups playing in their natural environment in the water pools and under the waterfall. We went in June and were totally blown away by the experience. Perfect for kids. Take a jersey or jacket as it can be quite cool in the shade up the valley.

We didn't really know what we were about to see until we got there, and even then we could scarcely believe it - about 30 seal pups playing in a pool in front of a waterfall. It was like something out of a film. I almost expected there to be a couple of mermaids on the rocks. Awesome is an over-used word but this certainly is. Incredible.

As long as you go at the right time when there are heaps of seals it is such a great way to see them.

This was the absolute highlight of my weekend! A 5 minute walk up the track to the waterfall to see the seal pups swimming and playing is magical!
