Many of the best walks in the world call our neighbourhood home, creating a year-round program of nature immersion. From Watching the Whales from the Balconnies, to viewing Aboriginal rock Carvings on Jibbon head, The Famous Wedding Cake Rock and figure eight pools, the Coast Track, not to mention local hidden secrets that we can tell you about there is always something new and exciting to do..
List of Attractions
After the Balconnies walk 3.1 km along the cliffs to Wedding Cake Rock , which has become one of Sydney’s must see icons. This stunningly unexpected piece of rock really is a must see.
Just over the next rise is fabulous Big Marley.
The coastal track from Otford to Bundeena is fairly well signposted. Add to that the fact that you are pretty much following the coast the entire way and it’s difficult to go too far wrong. Having said that, there are a few points where the route isn’t obvious and if you’re not paying attention you could take the wrong path. It’s also good to know roughly how far along you are and when to expect rougher terrain, especially if you intend to complete the entire route in one day and don’t want to find yourself by the side of a cliff after dark.
Whale watching at the Balconnies.
Join the beginning of the coast track at the end of Eric Street and take the second left to join the coast track, down to the Balconnies, which are towering sandstone cliffs, offering many vantage points to stop and watch the Whale Migration from May to November
