1. From Sydney: Private Day Trip to Royal National Park
Start with pickup from your accommodation and begin the drive to the park with a short stop at the serene Audley Weir. From here, choose to visit Wedding Cake Rock or Eagle Rock, either of which provides the opportunity to see wonderful coastal scenery. Wedding Cake Rock On this route, admire dramatic coastal views of cliffs and interesting sandstone formations, with stops at the Balconies and the Waterun. Upon arrival, discover an amazingly large piece of white sandstone, resembling the shape of a wedding cake. Watch as it sparkles against the background of the blue Pacific Ocean. You may also choose to walk a little further and see spectacular Marley Beach. Eagle Rock Choose the Eagle Rock route and follow a route that passes waterfalls, cliffs, and gullies. See native plants including wattles, banksias, grass trees, Gymea Lillies, and eucalypts. Upon arrival at Eagle Rock admire the nearby waterfall that drops directly into the ocean, which is a rare sight. After either Eagle Rock or Wedding Cake Rock, venture to Wattamolla, which has a large waterfall that drops into a lagoon with a surrounding sand beach. If the weather is warm there is an opportunity for a swim. Enjoy a refreshing lunch at a scenic location, followed by a visit to rugged Garie Beach. From this point, discover the areas south of the park such as Bald Hill, Sea Cliff Bridge, or make your way to Symbio Wildlife Park where you can get close to kangaroos and see many other native animals, including koalas.
