Nature lovers, take note: The neighbouring beach of Cape Bridgewater is home to the only mainland breeding colony of seals in Australia. There are more than 2000 Australian and long nosed fur seals who call this beautiful beach home, lazing most days on the cape rocks or surfing in the waves. Boat tours are available daily or, for those more daring, try a cage diving experience – it’s the only place in the world where you can do it! This spot is also frequented by hump back and southern right whales in the cooler months. It is one of the only places in the world where you can see blue whales from the mainland.
