Amazing place for hiking and enjoy the beach. Better to go on a week day very early in the morning. The scenic views are breathtaking.

We LOVED Weemalah Cottage in the Royal National Park. A large,clean cabin (three bedrooms) surrounded by idyllic bush and a beautiful river. The spacious balcony was our favourite feature. The cabin was well-stocked,including a bbq. The lounge and beds were very comfortable. We were lucky to see an echidna and a lace monitor! The nights were blissfully silent,but unfortunately during the day,the jetskiers and speed boat drivers made a racket,which spoilt the tranquility. The gravel road leading down to the cottage is a little hairy. Can't wait to try nearby Hill Top Cottage next time!

Hotel is nice and rooms comfortable. Breakfast good.
What lets this hotel down is the audacity of being told when checking in that as I was only staying there for 2 days the room would not be serviced.
When I asked whether I had booked into an hotel or a dosshouse, they were suddenly able to arrange for the room to be serviced.
Pure racketeering with no warning when booking. Apparently not the only hotel to take advantage of guests.
I have no doubt that an action for misrepresentation would succeed.

Extremely rude and unfriendly staff - do not even know how to talk to customers and families. Not at all a friendly place for kids due to these unfriendly staff as they think everyone coming is a pro in boating and should be able to steer perfectly all boats on their very places after each ride. I was half way out of my boat when one of the rude staff pushed the boat back in water leaving me almost slipped out of the boat and almost drowned ! Offcourse no words of apologies came out either.

Bored during the school holidays we decided to take our teenage boys on a kayak trip in the Royal National Park. You hire from the Audley Boat shed who supply life jackets as well. We all chose a single kayak each which I would suggest over the double canoes (unless you have young children). We took a picnic with us which we had at the end of the river. The water isn’t overly deep and very clean and clear. It is best to take out for 2 hours that way you don’t have to rush. The landscape is just beautiful and was a lovely way to spend an afternoon.

This is one of the best coast scenes we have seen. With the waves and the rocks formations. Do bring comfortable shoes for sure as there is a bit of walking for sure.

A great National Park, with stunning coastal sandstone scenery and coast heath bushland. The visitors centre staff were very helpful too.

While I didn’t get booked by the police for speeding, there were plenty of highway patrol cars on the road. They need more speed limit signs in the park though.

Royal National Park is the first national park in Australia. It has beautiful sceneries, especially in the coastal track and its a must-visit place.
We did bushwalking in RNP starting from Bundeena where we took the coastal track to Marley drive and then took the Marley walk to the car park in Bundeena drive. Marley beach to car park walk is a little less signed, but we had some mobile reception here and there and not hard to follow with GPS. Deer pool is in this walk, which is a beautiful place.
As the title of my review suggests, I want to focus my review on public transportation in Bundeena drive. This route has 1 bus that runs from Bundeena to Maianbar to Bundeena in the morning. Google maps and NSW trip planner will show times of the bus. When we took the walk, we planned to catch this bus from car park. However, there was no marked bus stop there, and a local uber driver said that the bus only take school children.
I contacted NSW transport regarding this and they informed me that "The 989 service is a public designated service, and all members of the public are entitled to utilize this service. We do not have Bus Stop signs for this particular route, however, the Drivers are always on the lookout when travelling through these points of interest in the national park. "

Our second visit and just as good as the first outing. Plenty of BBQs and picnic areas and a very safe area for the kids to run around. Take lunch and a camera and take advantage of the many walking trails.

Went there for a picnic with kids. If you look well you could find a nice and quiet picnic spot and kids can play safely. Lots of grass and open areas. Great scenery, lots of activities I favour for kayaking. Bring picnic staff for all day.
National parks fee applies. 12$ daily or 65$ annual.
