For a secluded bush picnic beside the pretty waterways of South West Arm, try the short walk to Warumbul picnic area in the northern section of Royal National Park, past Audley. You’ll feel a long way from the hustle and bustle beside the tranquil shores of Port Hacking.
It’s a short walk to this lovely bush setting and if you’re feeling energetic and have a bike, why not cycle in along the firetrail? Unpack a picnic at one of the tables and enjoy a relaxing lunch as you soak in the pretty views across the water to Gooseberry Bay and Costens Point.
After lunch, lie back and listen to the birds or explore the shoreline. It’s easy to while away a relaxing afternoon in this tranquil setting. Stay overnight at the nearby Weemalah Cottage or on the way home, you might be tempted to stop by Audley Dance Hall Cafe for a delicious coffee and cake.

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.
