Description
Waypoints (0)

The track uses Little Marley fire Trail before arriving at little Marley Beach which is a smaller beach that does not get crowded even in the busier months and a great place for a swim. There is the option to go on to Marley Beach. It then loops back to the carpark via Marley Trail passing by Marley Creek, the Deer Pool and then along Bundeena Drive. There are parts of the track near the creek crossing that are muddy almost year-round, so wear appropriate footwear. There is a shorter version that avoids the Little Marley fire Trail and the walk along Bundeena drive: www.alltrails.com/trail/australia/new-south-wales/marley-track-loop

Little Marley is one of the best sections along RNP coast line. However if not for exercise the fire trail and sealed road sections can be pretty much skipped and do the Coastal Walk itself. This loop is rather no point.

Great track! The coast walk is really easy. The walk into Deer Pool is a bit more challenging, especially since it was wet, but definitely worthwhile! Beautiful and varied scenery, flora and fauna.

First to Review

My first hike ever. First time using this app. I loved it. The last part from the cliff to the road was awesomely challenging for a first timer. And got to see an eagle on a cliff only 2 metres away from me eating fish. Great views I’ve never seen before. Thank god I downloaded the map cause there was a time I needed it lol thanks!
