Tour description

Venture just 30km south of Sydney’s vibrant CBD and you’ll encounter a true natural paradise, the Royal National Park. This is the oldest national park in Australia, and it hides some of the most pris-tine waters, rugged clifftops and seemingly endless coastal views as you’ll find anywhere in NSW. Before you It would be impossible not to find serenity here; surrounded by dramatic coastal paths and indigenous forests you can catch a glimpse of humpback whales and immerse yourself in over 1000 years of history at the Aboriginal Engravings Site. An absolute paradise for nature lovers and the perfect remedy for anyone needing a little salt water therapy, a day in the Royal National Park is always a day well spent!

Begin by taking the train from the Town Hall to Cronulla, the relaxed beachside suburb which feels like it’s own little village where the local’s one and only obsession is the surf! Explore the neighbour-hood, visit one of it’s beaches and stop by its delis and coffee shops to put together a delicious pic-nic to take with you. Then, take the ferry to Bundeena, the gateway to the Royal National Park. Nature lovers and anyone who wants to explore Sydney as an environmentally conscious traveller should certainly add this reserve to their bucket list. Let time slip away as you get back to nature here, discovering the stunning natural beauty and geological phenomena of the park. Enjoy your picnic on Garie Beach, go for a surf or soak up the sun as you look our for migrating humpback whales - from May until October this stretch of coast is known as the ‘Humpback High-way’! Let your local recommend a hike for you to do, which takes you to one of the stunning viewpoints, along a clifftop path or through the forest. Then dip your toes or dive in to one of the 11 fresh and saltwater swimming spots you’ll find here, the perfect way to cool off after your hike! If you’re interested in discovering more of NSW’s heritage, follow the trail from Jibbon Beach which leads to the Dharawal Aboriginal Engravings Site where you’ll find amazed by the incredible indigenous artwork which dates back over 1000 years.
