Located around 1 hour's walk south of Bundeena, Wedding Cake Rock is a highlight along the famous Coast track. The pure white rock stands out against the harder sandstone of the coastal cliffs - its sharp edges and deep cracks giving it a unique shape, like a slice of cake perched high above the pounding ocean.
The white colour is caused by iron leaching, which makes the sandstone layers dangerously soft, prone to cracking and at very high risk of collapse. For your safety, please don't stand or sit on the rock, or venture too close to cliff edges.
Getting there is half the adventure, as you tackle the steep and rocky track through coastal heathland, home to spring wildflowers, swamp wallabies and birdlife. The track traces the coastal cliffs, offering sweeping ocean views perfect for whale watching - and plenty of vantage points to take incredible photos of Wedding Cake Rock without compromising your safety.
On your way home, return along the track to Bundeena, or continue past Wedding Cake Rock down to Marley Beach.
Pure joy as you wake to the sunrise. Awe as you make it to the snowy peak. A sense of adventure as you motor across red plains. The relief of rejuvenation as you wade into an alpine stream. Connection as you taste native, fragrant leaves. A sense of belonging as you return to your favourite holiday house. Freedom as you dash into the waves. Discover the endless feelings a visit to NSW can inspire.
