Forest Path Walk
Where: Royal National Park

Here at South Coast Kids we think the Forest Path Walk in the Royal National Park is a perfect walk for families as it is along a dirt road and travels through scenic rainforests that the kids will love. There are also opportunities to swim along the way in one of many swimming spots. This walk is 4.4 kilometres long and is a loop track, which usually takes between 1 and 1.5 hours – longer if you pack a picnic and stay for a swim! If you’re feeling energetic you can extend the walk into the Couranga Walking Track.
This is a free walk however park entry fees apply. For further info visit (Photo from NSW National Parks & Wildlife site)

Getting there: This walk is closest to Waterfall train station, along Sir Bertram Stevens Drive
