“You can't get better than this.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2013

What a magnet for swimming, bush walking and biking. And for lunch simply fire up one of the public bbqs or go to the great cafe in Audrey.

“Day Trips away.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

The Royal is a nice place to get away for the day to picnic and relax. Visitors can trip to Bundeena and Maianbar for supplies and camp out in Bonnie Vale with amenities to use. There is bush-walking and you can catch a ferry from Cronulla to Bundeena and backpack into the R.N.P. I recommend it highly having grown up in the township of Bundeena.

“Camping and bushwalking on a day's ramble”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

Its 36 km from Sydney and is a magnet for bushwalking,picnicking,camping,swimming and bird watching. Catch a train from Town Hall in the city ,and then a ferry from Cronulla to Bundeena.
Bundeena is enclosed by the national Park on three sides. Its near Jibbon head where you can take a guided tour of the Aboriginal rock engravings
If you train to Audley,a popular picnic area,there are trails and bush walks that are easy going and beautiful. Its not far from Lady Carrington's Drive,a road thats crossed by 15 creeks and is a delight to walk or cycle.
Obtain information at the Visitors Center or the TI at Audley. For guided tours along the Coast Track....call 0410 681 375. Take water and sunscreen. There are kiosks at Audley,Garie beach and Wattamolla.

“Best part of Sydney”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

If you are only in Sydney for a week or so, this is a no brainer. You have to drive down and check out what this place has to offer! It's the most stunning place, and so close to a huge world city hub!

“Royal National park - Garie Beach , Burning Palm beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013

We visited the Royal National Park on Anzac day the entry fee is $11 - we went down to Garie Beach which is a nice relatively quiet beach , there is a small cafe there.It seems good for surf.
After we went to Burning Palm Beach , there is a long walk down which is steep in places so its best to start out in good time so that you have time to spend there.Its very secluded at the beach.
