The Royal National Park covers a landscape of 16,300 hectares shaped from sloping sandstone, bush tracks and stunning beaches. The perfect place for a great group of adventure women to spend the day hiking by the sea, getting fit and having a nice morning tea on the beach.
To experience the beauty of the National Park, we are hiking part of the Coastal Track from Cronulla Warf (we jump on the ferry!) to Little Marley Beach. This involves catching the ferry from Cronulla Warf, taking in magnificent coastal views and experiencing the variety of habitats along the way.
If you're new to hiking, or working on your fitness and skills, this is the perfect trip designed for you. Little Marley Beach is a beautiful spot for morning tea and Sunday relaxing after a decent hike.
Meeting location: Cronulla Ferry Public Warf. Drive to the end of Tonkin Street and park on the road. You will need to walk over to the Ferry Warf where we will be waiting for you. The ferry leaves at 8.30am sharp. Please arrive at 8.15am. We must get the 8.30am ferry and not be late. We will have to leave without you if you don't make the ferry... sorry!
