This 27km, 2-day trek in the Royal National Park near Sydney is a great way to learn new skills. Fully guided, it’s offered to participants of the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award Program as part of the program’s Adventurous Journey Section.
Before the trek, train and prepare with help of the Collaroy Centre’s expert team. Your adventure truly begins when you step off Cronulla Wharf for a scenic ferry ride to the peaceful seaside community of Bundeena. From here it's 2 days of hiking along the spectacular Coast track to the village of Otford, with 1 night of beachside camping at beautiful and secluded North Era campground.
Along the way you'll learn new navigation skills and camp craft from the experienced guides of the Collaroy Centre, which has a 15-year record of safe and enjoyable expeditions for this award program.
The Collaroy Centre is a licensed commercial tour operator with a Parks Eco Pass.
