Coast Track

Hiking in Royal National Park

This spectacular walk traces the coastline of the Royal National Park between Bundeena and Otford, both of which are accessible by public transport. It is a tough 26km and usually tackled in two days with an overnight at North Era campground (prebook via the website). Doing it north to south offers the best perspectives and keeps the sun at your back.

In winter you may well spot whales from the spectacular clifftop lookout points, while summer hikers can reward themselves with a dip at one of the numerous beaches.

Water availability on the walk is very limited, so carry plenty and pack some purification tablets. There's a tap at Garie Beach but no water at the campground.
