“Nice bush walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013 via mobile

We walked up to the waterfall and although there were no seal pups present (wrong season) it was really relaxing and a pleasant walk

“close to nature and so cute”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

visited the baby seals up in their own 'nursery' area at the waterfall. good interesting walk and quite short and what fun and cute baby seals awaited us. If youre prepared to sit and wonder you might even have a slot of just you and them. Torn between writing this review and keeping it a special secret...Not easy if you have a pushchair or difficulty walking but really worth it if you can manage.

“Sacred moment with seal pups”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

It is a short walk away from the highway but like entering another world. I had the good fortune to be the only human at the waterfall and pool and enjoyed the seal pups playing for a good while. It was a sacred moment.
