Out on Cape Bridgewater, Stony Hill is the highest cliff top on the Victorian coastline, towering 130 metres above sea level. It was once the western rim of a volcano, stretching between the Seal caves and the Springs. The evolution of a sand pit linked the island to the mainland, dines formed and have since turned to limestone.

Those keen for a walk will embrace an energetic two hour return walk to the seal colony from either the beach kiosk or the car park on the hill. A less energetic three hour return walk can be taken from the blowholes car park. Occasionally, whales can be seen from Lookout Point, where steps lead down to a viewing platform some 70 metres above the seals. scenic boat trips can aso be taken to experience the seals up close.
