Probably the best spot in the Royal National Park for whale watching in Sydney. It is a short walk through the park to the whale watching site. See our description of Cobblers and the Waterrun in the hiking section for more information.
Situated at the northern end of the Royal National Park, Bonnie Vale Campground offers endless activities for the whole family including fishing, hiking, playing on the tidal sand flats, swimming and more.
If you have your own kayak, then a paddle from Audley Weir to Bundeena is highly recommended. Starting at Audley Weir, the route follows the Hacking River, and into Port Hacking itself.
Surrounded by the Royal National Park is the small township of Bundeena. It is at the mouth of Port Hacking, on the opposite shore to Cronulla.
Around Bundeena there are plenty of beaches to land on and explore. From the kayak hire on Simpsons Bay, paddling west will take you to shallower and sheltered waters.
The Cobblers and surrounding cliffs are one of the best viewing points for whale watching within the Royal National Park. Part of the Coast Track, this walk offers stunning views of the coastline.
