About Cronulla

With a beach vibe and an outdoor lifestyle, Cronulla is a laid back area with plenty of things to do. There’s fishing off the coast, hiking one of the area’s picturesque trails, whale watching or just lazing on one of the uncrowded beaches.

Cronulla boasts one of the longest stretches of beach in Sydney, with miles of golden sand and lively surf. The outdoor cafe scene offers a great vantage point where you may be able to spot dolphins popping up in the adjoining waters.

Just south of Cronulla lies the peaceful village of Bundeena, accessible via a ferry ride across Port Hacking River. The ferry will allow you to explore one of Sydney’s unspoiled waterways on a three hour cruise where you can learn about early explorers of the district, local Aboriginal sites and culture, historical settlements and deer farming in the nearby reserve.

Nearby to the beach are Royal National Park and Heathcote National Park - two of Sydney’s best wilderness areas for bushwalking, having a picnic, fishing and camping.
