It took two years and a multi-million dollar refurbishment, but when Audley Dance Hall at Audley Weir reopened in 2011, Audley Cafe quickly made it the destination for visitors looking for a bite to eat in Royal National Park.
Set amid native bushland with views over Hacking River, the cafe is a perfect place to kick back over breakfast or a hearty lunch. Birds forage on the lawn and rowboats drift across the river, with leaves falling from the trees in autumn.
You can also wander down to Audley boatshed and rent a boat to paddle on Audley Weir.
Royal National Park has always been a popular destination for Sydneysiders, and this is one more reason to make the pilgrimage out from the city.
