NSW: Royal National Park: Coastal Walk

Monday was a whirl wind adventure, a little frustrating and a lot of fun.  Jay and I decided to spend our day exploring The Royal National Park in NSW, slightly south of Sydney.

The Royal National Park is enormous. We made the mistake of failing to look up the park’s map and figuring out what we wanted to see, where we should park and what entrance to take.  Thankfully, life has a funny way of working everything out and despite driving around aimlessly for the first hour of our experience, we ended up parking in the perfect spot.

Our google maps led us to ‘waterfall’ a town off the Princess Highway and the entrance to  The Uloola Trail. We soon realised we were miles from where we really wanted to be and although we were tempted to hike towards the Uloola Waterfall, we had other plans in mind.

NOTE: If you’re travelling from Sydney, we recommend taking the first exit towards Audley.  From there, you have a lot more options of walking tracks and are closer to the COASTAL WALK.

We decided to drive to BUNDEENA, the start (well, one end) of the Coastal Track. From Bundeena, it is only an hours walk to the famous Wedding Cake Rock and the route to some of the most beautiful views from the ‘balconies’. I highly recommend leaving a lot of time to explore The Royal National Park. We ran out of day and wished we could have kept on walking the Coastal Track, as well as explore some of the beautiful waterfalls available.

  2. This looks like a lot fun. Were the marks along the path obvious? 🙂 I got lost a couple times in the past, just saying 😉

    • There was always a path or sign along the way. We would wander in the wrong direction (because we were eager to climb down closer to the edge) but it was very obvious, if you’re paying attention! 🙂 Thank you for reading xx
