Full description

Start with a pickup from your accommodation then commence the drive to the Royal National Park. Upon reaching the park, you'll have a short stop at the serene Audley Weir. From here, choose between visiting Wedding Cake Rock or Eagle Rock. Both places provide the opportunity to see wonderful coastal scenery. Your guide will outline the walk times and differences between the two.

If you'd prefer not to do either of the walks you can visit several places further south of the park, such as the Otford Lookout and the iconic Imperial at Clifton Hotel.

Wedding Cake Rock

On this route, admire dramatic coastal views of cliffs and interesting sandstone formations, with stops at the Balconies and the Water run.

Upon arrival, discover an amazingly large piece of white sandstone, resembling the shape of a wedding cake. Watch as it sparkles against the background of the blue Pacific Ocean. A little further on is spectacular Marley Beach, which is best appreciated from a high lookout point. Marley Beach is unusual in having sand dunes that merge into the beach sand. Behind the dunes is a pristine reeded lagoon.

Eagle Rock

Choose the Eagle Rock walk and follow a track that passes waterfalls, cliffs, and gullies. See native plants including wattles, Banksias, grass trees, Gymea Lillies, and Eucalypts.

Upon arrival at Eagle Rock admire crystal clear Curracurrong creek as it reaches the cliff edge and becomes a waterfall that drops directly into the ocean. The waterfall drops 40 meters into a shallow bay and if sunny the ocean water takes on a translucent green color. If the surf is up you'll hear the pounding waves hit the cliff face below. After either Eagle Rock or Wedding Cake Rock, venture to Wattamolla, which has a wide waterfall that drops into a lagoon. The lagoon then forms into a stream that gently meanders to the nearby beach.

If the weather is warm there is an opportunity for a swim. Enjoy a refreshing lunch at a scenic location, followed by a visit to rugged Garie Beach. From this point, discover the areas south of the park such as Bald Hill and Sea Cliff Bridge, or make your way to Symbio Wildlife Park where you can get close to kangaroos and see many other native animals, including koalas.

Absolutely amazing! Great views, excellent hiking in the Park, managed to handfeed kangaroos! visited koalas in Symbio and they were moving as they usually sleep. Greg was perfect in managing time to make sure we see everything. One of the best days in mylife
