The Royal National Park is located just 45 minutes south of Sydney, and is the most popular park in all of Australia.

It was established in 1879, making it not only Australia’s oldest national park, but the second oldest in the entire world (after Yellowstone in the USA).

With over 15,000 hectares of protected land, from jaw-dropping coastal cliffs, isolated beaches, stunning waterfalls, dense native bush and picturesque swimming holes, there really is something for everyone in the Royal National Park.

If you’re an active person you’re in luck, because the Royal National Park is also home to some of the best walks in Sydney.

With easy access from the CBD, you can get here by public transport, or if you have your own vehicle, there’s lots of parking available wherever you want to explore.

Whether you live in Sydney or are just here on a holiday, we highly recommend you visit the Royal National Park to bask in some of the state’s most incredible coastal views.

The Best Royal National Park Walks

There are so many beautiful Royal National Park walks, and we have broken them down into where they are located.

This way you’ll be able to figure out which hiking trails you’d like to do, based on where you’ll be starting from in the Royal National Park.

Hikes from Bundeena

Bundeena is a gorgeous little coastal town located at the northern end of the Royal National Park.

Many Royal National Park walks begin here.

The Royal Coast Track (Bundeena to Otford)

  • Time: 2 days (one big day if you’re very fit)
  • Distance: 26km one-way
  • Difficulty: Moderate-Hard
  • Camping Spot: North Era Campground
  • Start / Finish: Bundeena to Otford (or reverse)

This is the big one – The Royal National Park coastal track is an epic multi-day trek between the towns of Bundeena and Otford.

The trail is 26km and will take 2 days to do it. You can pitch your tent at North Era Bush Campground, 18km from Bundeena (advanced bookings are necessary).

You can do the hike in either direction, but we personally recommend doing it from Bundeena to Otford, so you get the bulk of it out of the way on the first day.

The walk follows the coast giving you awesome views at a bunch of different lookouts.

The highlights include Wedding Cake Rock and the Figure 8 Pools, but for us the best part was spotting migratory humpback whales just off the cliffs.

Do the hike between May and October to time it with the whale season.

There is public transport to Bundeena and Otford, so you can easily do the Royal Coast Track from Sydney.

Take the train from Central Station to Cronulla, then jump on the ferry to Port Hacking.

Once you finish in Otford there is a station there to let you take a train straight back to the city.

This easy walk starts at the ferry wharf in Bundeena and goes towards Jibbon Head, Port Hacking Point and Shelley Beach.

Jibbon Beach Loop Track

  • Time: 2 hours
  • Distance: 5lm loop
  • Difficulty: Moderate
  • Start / Finish: Bundeena

This hiking trail in the Royal National Park is similar to the above. But instead of going in a triangle loop, you follow the coastline from Bundeena to Jibbon Head.

Once you get to Jibbon Head you will head down to Shelly Beach and hit an intersection. Head inland towards Bundoora.

You will meet up with the path you walked out of town on.

Best Time to Visit Royal National Park

The best time to go walking or hiking in Royal National Park depends on what you would like to see and do.


Summer (December, January and February) is obviously best for swimming and paddling in Royal National Park, but it will be busy as this is Australia’s holiday months.

So plan ahead if you are camping in the park or get there early to get a parking spot.

The park’s beaches and swimming holes in the rivers and creeks will be packed.

Garie Beach is patrolled by lifeguards in the summer so it is a great place to go for families.


During Spring (September, October, and November) you will come across beautiful wildflowers that are blooming.

The best area to see this is along the Coast Track, Curra Moors Loop Track or Wise Track.

Bring layers during this time as weather can change and get cooler early in the day.

Some days can be rainy so check the weather before heading to the Royal National Park to be prepared. 


The best time to visit Royal National Park is autumn, from March to May.

The park will be quieter, especially during the week. Weekends will be busy as this is a great getaway for people living around the area.

If you are on the coastal walks and hikes you may spot whales migrating at the end of April and May.


In the winter months (June, July, and August) is a great time to see humpback whales just off the coast of the Royal National Park.

That being said, the weather for hiking is cold and can be wet or overcast.

If that doesn’t bother you though you’ll be rewarded with empty trails.

The winds along the coast can also be particularly heavy. Make sure you bring waterproof and windproof outerwear.

We personally use and recommend Kathmandu clothing. You can find their gear online or in stores in any of Australia’s major towns.

Crossing A Bridge
Every time of the year is a great time to explore Royal National Park.

How to Get to Royal National Park

Getting to the Royal National Park is easy and you have several options.

We will explain to you how to get there on your own transport or taking public transport. All the instructions below are from Sydney CBD. 


If you’re driving to Royal National Park, you’ll be able to explore just about anywhere you want.

All of the most popular Royal National Park bushwalks are accessible by car, and you’ll find places to park in Bundeena, Otford, Audley and Wattamolla, as well as in the towns on the main road such as Waterfall, Engadine and Loftus.

The best way to get around is to rent a car and explore on your own! We recommend Rental Cars, which has the largest range of vehicles for the best value on the market.


You can catch a ferry from Cronulla Ferry Wharf to Bundeena.

It’s a 20 minute trip across the Hacking River and is a beautiful ferry ride. The Cronulla wharf is a short walk from the Cronulla train station.

You can get the Illawarra line (blue line) to Cronulla from Sydney CBD.

Once you are in Bundeena, it is a 25-minute walk through the village to the walking track entry points. 

Check the Transport NSW website for ferry times and more information.


There are regular trains that run every half an hour on weekends and more often in peak times. Take the Blue Illawarra Line from Sydney.

The train will stop at Cronulla, Loftus, Engadine, Heathcote and stopping at Waterfall train station at the southern end of the national park.

If you want to continue onto Otford, take the South Coastline. When you get to the Otford station, it is a 20-minute walk up a steep hill to get to the entry point of the Royal National Park.

This is where the Coast Track will start from if you decide to go from south to north.

The South Coast Line trains run once every hour (every second hour on Sunday) from Central Station in Sydney CBD.

Check the Transport NSW website for train times and more information.


There is a bus that goes to Royal National Park which runs from Sutherland train station to multiple locations within the park.

The bus fare starts from $9, or an all-day pass is $15.

Do book in advance on weekends and during the holidays as it is busy.

During the week may be quieter and you can pay the bus driver directly.

Bus stops include:

  • Sutherland train station
  • Otford train station
  • Bundeena Wharf
  • Audley
  • North and south ends of the Coast Track
  • Wattamolla
  • Garie Beach
  • Garawarra Farm car park (the start point for the walk to Figure 8 Pools)

Royal National Park Fees

When entering the park there is a $12 fee per vehicle per day. There are ticket machines at parking lots. Do bring the right change if you want to pay by cash instead of card.

You can buy a 1-year pass or 2-year pass

  • All Parks Pass – For all parks in NSW (including Kosciuszko NP) $190 (1 year) / $335 (2 years)

  • Buy now

Camping in Royal National Park

There are a few spots where you can camp in the Royal National Park.

We highly recommend booking ahead of time as it is a very popular park, and if you don’t have a reservation, you can’t sleep here (no matter how tired you may be).

Book your campsite on the Parks NSW site.

North Era Campsite
Our campsite at North Era Campground

North Era Campground

This is a popular campsite as it is along the Coast Track and is a good stopping point to break up the journey.

It is not accessible by car, only by foot. The campsite is located right on the beach.

There are grass spots, a small sand dune for shielding the wind from the campsites and a drop toilet.

There is no drinking water here so definitely bring enough. It’s a super peaceful and secluded spot in the Royal National Park.

Bonnie Vale Campground

This is the largest campground in the Royal National Park.

It is accessible by car and located between Bundeena and Maianbar. From the nation park entrance in Loftus, it is a 25-minute drive to Bonnie Vale Campground.

It is also a 15-minute walk from the Bundeena wharf. This campground is well set up with 74 sites located in the bush and on the beach, flush toilets, hot showers, drinking water and washing sinks.

There are BBQs available if needed.  

Uloola Falls Campground

This campsite is located next to the largest waterfall in the Royal National Park, Uloola Falls.

It is a great stopping point along the Uloola Track. It is only accessible by foot. This campsite connects to Karloo Track.

There is a drop toilet here and space for 6 spots. 

Kingfisher Pool Campground

Located 50m away from the tranquil Kingfisher Pool along the Bullawarring Walking Track.

You can only locate this campsite by foot so be well prepared. Campsites are among the bush and there is flowing water.

Do filter the water before using. Continue down the trail and you will see a picnic table and the campground is off to the left.

There is a drop toilet.

Rules for Hiking in Royal National Park

When you are hiking in the Royal National Park please do respect the rules and regulations.

This is so important for our environment and wildlife. In Australia, the temperature can get high, weather is dry and winds can be strong.

This, unfortunately, makes our bushland a high risk of dangerous fires.

In all National Parks in New South Wales, these below are prohibited. 

  • No campfires and solid fuel burners 
  • No gathering firewood
  • No smoking
  • No pets (dogs included)
  • No drones, unless you have permission by national parks. Spoiler alert – they will not give you a permit unless you have a commercial reason to be flying there and you complete the application.
