Things to Do
Bundeena is one of the most southern suburbs of Sydney and is located in the Royal National Park where there are plenty of hiking and bike riding trails to explore. The area is a nature lover's haven, well known for its flora and wildlife, pristine white beaches, ancient Aboriginal rock carvings and vibrant artistic community. Although the trip from the CBD takes less than one hour, Bundeena feels like a small seaside town with its relaxed beachside atmosphere, close proximity to nature and gentler pace of life.
Bundeena was home to the ancient Dharawal people and means "noise like thunder", as the sound of crashing waves continuously rumbles through the salty clean air. The Dharawal people lived in the area up to 5000 years ago and roamed the 16,300 hectares of rainforest, creeks, gullies, headlands, ridges, sandstone plateau's and rugged beaches as hunters and gatherer's.
Today there remain numerous coastal walking tracks you can explore with stunning views and filled with over 700 species of flowering plants that attract a cacophony of wildlife. Not to be missed are the ancient aboriginal rock carvings of sea and wildlife hidden in the bushes just beyond Jibbon Beach - one of four beautiful local beaches including Bonnie Vale, Horderns and Gunyah.
