Werrong Beach track is a 4km, grade 5 Return hike located in the Royal National Park, NSW. The hike should take approximately 1.5hrs to complete.

Summary

Only an hour south of Sydney, take a walk along Werrong Beach track in Royal National Park. Taking you to Werrong Beach, a designated nude beach, it’s perfect for those who like their nature ‘a la naturelle’. Although the beach is beautiful, it’s unsuitable for swimming due to the prominence of rips and rocks.
The idyllic coastal walking track which takes you Werrong Beach is in the southern most area of the park. At Otford lookout, take in spectacular coastal views up and down the coast. From here, it’s a short steep climb passing a dramatic sandstone cliff before dropping into lush coastal rainforest of cabbage tree palms and ferns.
Upon arriving at the beach, fling off your shoes, walk the sandy shores, and take in the ocean vista. You might be the only ones there, except for the silver gulls and occasional sea eagle. Make sure you pack a hearty picnic lunch, because you’ll need the energy to get back up the steep track.
