Important COVID-19 update
Booderee National Park has a number of COVID-19 safety measures in place to protect visitors, staff and the local community.
For further information on Booderee National Park’s COVID-19 safety measures please refer to the COVID-19 safety webpage and check the entry requirements before visiting Booderee National Park.
Sharing the waters of our park are these magnificent seals. The largest type of seal in Australia, fur seals have large eyes, a pointed face with whiskers and sharp teeth. The males are larger than the females and have a mane of coarse dark hair when mature: they can grow up to just until two and a half metres long!
The fur seal prefers to hang out in rocky outcrops and flat, open terrain. They prey on squid or school fish, as well as crustaceans, bottom-dwelling fish, and more.
The fur seal is considered to be a vulnerable species in New South Wales. We don’t recommend getting too close!
You may catch a glimpse of these seals catching fish in Booderee’s sea caves at Devil’s Elbow, on the Munyunga Waraga Dhugan trail.
