Point Labatt, South Australia

Poit Labatt, part of the coastline renowned for its spectacular cliffs, is situated about fifty kilometres south of Streaky Bay, on the west coast of the Eyre Peninsula. On a sandy beach at the bottom of the cliffs , there is a permanent seal colony, though unfortunately the numbers are considerably fewer than in earlier years.

There is a track down to the beach, but most people balk at the initial scramble over the cliff edge to reach the narrow ledge tucked under the cliff top from which the path starts. Once the main slope is reached, care must be taken as the ground is loose and crumbly. The seals appear to lead a life of utter bliss, with nothing better to do than lie around and snooze in the sun.
