Take the scenic detour away from Highway 1 through the world's second national park and Australia's first national park, established in 1879. The Dharawal people are the Traditional Owners of the land where Royal National Park is conserved today. This drive is a great way to glimpse several diverse natural features of Royal National Park in one day, including rugged sandstone cliffs, wetlands, coastal rainforest, heathland, and tall eucalypt forests that line the roads and multi-use trails. The route can be taken as one through-drive, or with two details as marked using Wattamolla Road to Wattamolla Beach, and second off Bundeena Drive out to the town of Bundeena. Expect these sealed roads inside the Royal National Park to be extremely busy with some traffic delays on weekends and public holidays, especially during summer. Most of the sites in the park are also accessible via public transport, this route is also ideal for road cycling. This is for experienced cyclists as many parts of the road do not have a shoulder so cars will be overtaking you constantly, and there are so steep climbs and windy descents.
