You can have your cake

The Royal National Park is 36 kilometres south of Sydney. The park has a range of beautiful natural formations including freshwater pools, forests, waterfalls, lagoons, cliffs, beaches and rock pools. The challenge is deciding what to see and in what order.

The itinerary below includes a walk to Wedding Cake Rock. This walk requires a reasonable level of fitness. It takes around 2 hours return (including breaks).

If you would prefer something easier have a look at the ‘easy rider alternative’.

Royal National Park Day Tour including Wedding Cake Rock

(i)           We have a quick photo stop at Audley Weir near the entrance to the park and then head to Bundeena to

commence the walk to Wedding Cake Rock. The Rock is a spectacular white sandstone formation. On the way

we will see the cliff views of the Balconies and the Waterrun.

(ii) Wattamolla – a very pretty waterfall, lagoon and beach

(iii) Drive through the park to Governor Game lookout where we have a picnic lunch

(iii)         Walk to the tessellated pavement at Garie Beach whilst enjoying a rugged unspoilt landscape

(iv)          Bald Hill – great lookout and hang-gliding launch spot

(v)         Sea Cliff Bridge – situated in a harsh marine environment Sea Cliff Bridge is an impressive cantilevered bridge.

From this point we can either make our way back to your accommodation or include a short visit

to either a microbrewery or artisan distillary on the way home. Your day your call!

Royal National Park - the easy rider alternative

Not everyone wants to walk for a couple of hours. If you would like to visit the Royal National Park without visiting Wedding Cake Rock we can formulate a much easier plan for the day.

This could include replacing Wedding Cake Rock with a relaxed flat walk 15 minute walk along pretty Jibbon Beach to the indigenous rock art and or a visit to nearby Symbio Wildlife Park. We will design the day to meet your requirements.


Around 8-9 hours – the time spent at each place is flexible so the tour can progress at a pace that suits you.

Generally pick up is at 9.00am from your lodgings and we return to your accommodation between 5.00pm – 6.00pm. Let us know if you would like to vary the pick-up and return time.

We can arrange pick up from boat terminal and drop off at boat terminal.
