- Cronulla Beach

The main attraction at Cronulla is its long sandy beach that stretches from North Cronulla to Boat Harbour. This beach is broken down into several individual beaches, swimming areas, and public parks.

Audley is both the gateway to the Royal National Park and the first destination along Australia’s famed Great Pacific Drive. The park is one of Sydney’s most popular escapes for residents wanting to spend a day exploring nature by boat, bike, or on foot. Many folk continue onward to cruise a portion of the Great Pacific Drive, one of the world’s most scenic roads.

From the crest of the dunes, the skyline of Sydney looms in the distance, a reminder of just how close you are to the big city.
