The Coast track in Sydney's Royal National Park is an epic multi-day walk between Bundeena and Otford. Enjoy incredible coastal lookouts, swimming spots, seasonal wildflowers and whale watching along this challenging 26 kilometre track.

The Coast track can be tackled in sections or, if you’re super-fit, in a day. It's best experienced as a two-day backpack trip with an overnight stop at North Era campground (advance bookings required).

The northern section of the walk covers around 18 kilometres from Bundeena to North Era. Allow at least seven hours to enjoy the rugged beauty of Royal National Park's sandstone escarpments, sandy beaches, coastal heath and forest, as you walk. There are several scenic stops along the way, including Little Marley Beach, Wattamolla, Curracurrang Cove near Eagle Rock lookout, and Garie Beach. Stop for a rest, have a picnic, or cool off with a swim, before continuing to North Era campground for the night.

The southern section of the walk, between North Era and Otford lookout, covers eight kilometres and takes around three hours. You'll pass several heritage shacks at South Era, and travel through coastal rainforest of burning palms and palm jungle. Why not stop at Burning Palms Beach, before climbing back atop the headlands. Take in the views from Werrong lookout then push on the last couple of kilometres to Otford lookout.
