What you'll do
Take a breather from the city and join us for a day discovering secluded beaches and the rugged beauty of the NSW coastline in one of the worlds oldest National Parks. After meeting you we'll give you a quick tour of Cronulla; a seaside location that is popular with local surfers. Here, you'll experience Sydney’s coffee culture and sample a flat white, cappuccino or espresso at one of the best rated cafes in Sydney. Once caffeinated we'll take a historic ferry cruise on the Hacking River over to the township of Bundeena, giving you the opportunity to chill out and take in the beautiful bush surrounds. Here, we'll embark on a moderate two to three hour hike into one of the oldest National Parks in the world. You will witness one of the best preserved Aboriginal rock art sites in Sydney, see hidden harbour and coastal beaches, and immerse in the local flora and fauna. We'll stop for a relaxed lunch (bring your own or can be purchased in Cronulla) before visiting a calm, harbour beach where you can choose to go for a swim before we head back to Cronulla on the ferry. Before you leave, feel free to ask us for tips on the best places to eat, swim and shop while you're in Cronulla.

Where you'll be
We'll spend most of this experience in Royal National Park; one of the world's oldest national parks. In addition to spectacular sandstone coastline and aqua coloured swimming spots, the park is home to a huge variety of Australian plant and wildlife like the banksia, and between May and November, is a great place to spot whales during their migration.
