Yesterday we ventured out on a two day trip to Australia’s oldest national park, the Royal National Park, to attempt a bit of the Coast Walk Trail. Luckily it wasn’t too far off from Sydney, and it was totally doable without a car – very suitable for us at the present. We took the awesome CityRail to the suburb of Cronulla, and then a short ferry ride to Bundeena. We walked around 9 to 10km to the Providential Point Camground, (less than half the full trail) and then setup a campsite. The trail was very worthwhile, as it had some nice coastal scenery, and lots of awesome rock shapes eroded by wind and water. Along the walk we encountered little lizards, birds, some heavy rain, and a rat or mouse which tried to get into our tent in the middle of the night (only saw its shadow on the tent above my face). Awesome walk indeed.
Tip: book the camp sites for the coastal walk 7 days in advance to get a permit
