Seal Rocks is home to more than a quarter of the Australian population of fur seals. Previously facing the risk of extinction, the colony numbers around 16,000 seals on the premises. Located near Philip Island, Seal Rocks can be accessed through Wildlife Coast Cruises by visitors. They have special permission to sail around the protected area during October to December. During this period, seals breed: the males are in search of a female for a mate. Most of the seals can be found sunning themselves on the rocks or bobbing along with the rolling waves.
