Getting There

This is an out and back map for people camping at North Era, one of the most beautiful beaches and campsites in the Royal National Park. A great walk with varied terrain, including spectacular cliffs, a palm jungle and heathland. There is a steep but the views are unbeatable, and if lucky of wallabies can be spotted along the trail! It starts from the official Coast Track entry, not from Otford station which is a short 500m walk from the trailhead for those that don´t have a car or wish to use public transport. There is plenty of parking at the trailhead and a stop for the Park Connections shuttle bus. A bush camping permit is required if you're camping and booking in advance for the site is recommended. Bring plenty of water, especially in the summer. This an overnight option for this that wish to return to the same point at the end of the walk, it uses part of the Coast Track (South to North), if you wish to do a longer point to point walk you can see the route here: www.alltrails.com/trail/australia/new-south-wales/royal-national-park-coast-track-south-to-north

Pit toilets at North Era, BYO toilet paper/hand sanitizer.

North Era books out months in advance.

Access via road, or a short walk from the station. There is untimed parking at the trail head, and a stop for the Park Connections shuttle bus.
