On this loop walk you will enjoy some grand ocean views, a few secluded beaches, rock shelves and some Aboriginal engravings. The walk starts in the community of Bundeena and follows the roads to Jibbon Beach then along the track to Jibbon Head and Shelley beach, then a long stretch of sandy management trail through the heath. The walk also describes a side trip to Bundeena Lookout.

Getting there

If by car start at Bundenna Wharf.  By public transport take the train to Cronulla Train Station.  Once outside the station head to the Cronulla ferry terminal (5 minutes walk), follow the footpath back alongside the train track until you see a tunnel that goes under the track (there's signage from there).  The ferry leaves once an hour, make sure you check the timetable for when you need to get back.  If you miss the final ferry Bundenna does not have any public transport facilites, and getting a taxi out there is very difficult and expensive.

Beautiful walk with some amazing colours

I included the walk as an add on, coming back from the Coastal Walk. The sandy management trail was downhill and therefore not too exhausting.

Pleasant stroll along the beach. Nice views. Aboriginal engravings on rock shelves interesting and well protected/signposted/interpretted.

Nice views at the head. You can also see aboriginal art here. Good walk but the signage needs work. Some of the paths are overgrown so it's hard to know where to go.
