Contemplative Walk – Royal National Park, NSW
“Our common home is like a sister with whom we share our life and a beautiful mother who opens her arms to embrace us.” (Laudato Si, 1)
Take some time to allow the divine presence in nature to be with you, as we walk in nature within the Wattamolla region of the Royal National Park. The morning will include, a guided input and contemplation, quiet walking, with time for reflection and sharing.
The walk begins at Wattamallo Beach and heads north along the Coastal Track to Marley Beach before heading back Wattamallo along the same track. Sydney’s heritage-listed Royal National Park was established in 1879 and stands on Dharrawal country. It is the world's second-oldest national park and features unique heritage attractions, along with fascinating plants, birds, and animals.
The Coastal Track from Wattamolla to Little Marley is part of a spectacular coastal walk along the cliffs of the Royal National Park that goes between two beaches. Mostly boardwalk with some rocky track, the views were amazing and the wildflowers stunning. A few uphill sections uphill to get some exercise but otherwise quite flat and easy. There’s lots of pass points along the boardwalk and lots of photo opportunities. Keep your eye out for birdlife!
The Walk: Graded as ‘Easy’ and is suitable for most ages and fitness levels. Some bushwalking experience is recommended. The path may have short steep hill sections, a rough surface, and many steps.
