A royal day out

Yesterday Sydney Nimble Tours took a small group to the Royal National Park. The day started with a stopover at the perfectly still waters of Audley Weir.

This was followed by a walk along the Jibbon Loop Track to the Jibbon Headland Aboriginal engravings and Shelley Beach.

At this point it was time to enjoy a coffee at Bundeena before heading to Garie Beach for a picnic lunch. The main event for the day was a bush walk from Garie Beach to Thelma Head.

The group showed off its fitness on the ascent to Thelma Head. The views of Garie Beach to the North and Era Beach to the South reveal the grandeur of cliffs and lushly forested hills abruptly ending before the Pacific Ocean.

On the way to Thelma Head the shoreline has a significant area of tessellated pavement which in parts was rectangular and in others triangular.

The name tessellated originates from the resemblance of the rock to the tiles of a mosaic floor. The day was completed by a refreshing body surf at Garie Beach.

The amount of walking you do on our Sydney Royal National Park Tour can be varied. If for instance you did not wish to do the two hour return walk to Wedding Cake Rock we can substitute a shorter walk and visit other locations.

The great thing about the Royal National Park is that there are a lot of choices available. What about a visit to Symbio Wildlife Park in nearby Helensburgh.
