“The water’s so clear, you can see [the Australian Sea Lions] really well,” exclaims WUDU convoyer Ron Sinclair, watching them frolic from the cliff-top lookout at Point Labatt.
Marine biologist Dirk Holman says Australian Sea Lions breed every 17 to 18 months. But with three colonies at Cape Labatt breeding six months apart, you’re almost always likely to see mothers tending their young.
You’ll find more than sea lions here. The variable sea environment all kinds of water life to its off shore reefs, sea grass and sandy bits.
“We even get turtles coming through. You get the lot!” says Dirk.
