Bundeena and Horderns Beach

A short ferry ride across the Port Hacking river sees you arrive into the beach side community of Bundeena – your gateway to the Royal National Park. The journey takes about 30 minutes and Cronulla Ferries offers a regular schedule.

Whilst in Bundeena, if you’re not spending time on it’s beautiful sandy Horderns beach, perfect for having a refreshing swim, you might like to have lunch or a snack at one of its cafes.  Next to Horderns beach is Gunyah beach – popular with the locals and also for snorkelling. Other beaches you might visit whilst visiting Bundeena include Bonnie Vale.  This beach is found just a short walk westward of Horderns beach and is found within the Royal National Park for which an entrance fee is payable.  There are plenty of facilities available at Bonnie Vale.  If you head eastward you’ll find Jibbon beach – also within the Royal National Park, but for which no fee is payable.  Looking across from Cronulla it’s easy to identify by the boats moored up during the Summer period.  From here you can also visit the Aboriginal carvings on Jibbon Point or one of the many fishing points along the coastline. 

Bushwalkers are also well catered for with plenty of fabulous spots for a picnic.  For those seeking a little more activity why not try kayaking or boating.
