Royal National Park coast walk
This walk is often done as a two day walk, but we split it over three days to give us plenty of time for hanging around at the many nice places on the track. We started at Bundeena, just south of Sydney and walked south to Otford. You'll need camping permits (see here (opens new window) for details.
