Description
Waypoints (0)

This is a great short walk that follows a fire trail and coastal track along cliff edges and gives visitors great viewing opportunities of the unique wedding cake rock formation. Using the car park at the end of Beachcomber Avenue in Bundeena as a starting point the walk follows the Big Marley fire trail around Jibbon hill and creeps its way towards the coast at Marley Beach. Near Marley turn left onto the coast track and follow the sea cliffs a short distance to the infamous wedding cake rock. Continuing on the coast track will be lots of wildlife and good spots for whale watching as you pass other landmarks like the Waterrun and the Balconies. There is a lot of boardwalk along this loop to ease any difficulty and all abilities should feel welcome to complete this loop. It goes without saying that the views along the coast are vast and impressive and should not be missed in good weather! If you don’t have the time or desire to do the entire coastal walk, this shorter walk is highly recommended.

Great trail. Stunning coastline. The return track was very muddy in parts but ok.

Great trail, a bit muddy on the last track back to the car, we were glad we wore waterproof boots!

A gorgeous coastal walk. Quite long and a bit tedious at times (lots of natural rock stairs leading up to wedding cake rock) but beautiful views along the way. Much preferred the coast line view to the rock itself to be honest.

This is a beautiful coastal track. We did it more than a month ago and we were very lucky to see several whales just off the coastline! The track offers little shade so it can be very windy and hot though.

There’s so little shade so make sure to wear a hat and sunscreen. The rock is amazing to see and the ferry ride to the hike itself is very nice

Easy walk on a well maintained pathway. Popular during the weekday. Toilets available near the Bundeena ferry wharf. Wedding cake rock is fenced off quite high, can only take a photo.

Trail was wonderful.. good mix between waking track, Rocky trail (fire trail) and bush path. Keep in mind that bush path was quite muddy but not too bad.. wedding cake rock barricaded and can only take photos from a distance due to safety precautions and structure may give way at any time. Well worth doing.
