For that far away feeling, only an hour from Sydney, head for the secluded charm of award-winning Weemalah Cottage in Royal National Park. Nestled on the banks of the picturesque Hacking River, this waterfront oasis is a great weekend getaway for a small group of friends or family.

Make the most of your holiday and spend your days swimming or fishing on the river. Explore the lush waterfalls on Winifred Falls walking track or spend a lazy afternoon soaking up the scenic riverside views from Warumbul picnic area. You might see goannas, wallabies and even eastern water dragons sunning themselves on the riverbanks.

After spending the day fishing along the river, return to Weemalah to enjoy a drink on the verandah as the sun sets. Settle in for a peaceful evening and be soothed to sleep by the sounds of the forest and the gently flowing river.

Conservation and coastal engravings in Royal National Park

The conservation and coastal engravings project in the Royal National Park is working to preserve one of the region’s finest expressions of Aboriginal culture: the Jibbon Headland Aboriginal engravings. A new boardwalk and viewing platform limit the foot access that was damaging the engravings, while encroaching soil and vegetation are being removed.
