Wedding Cake Rock is a popular and very fragile rock formation located along the challenging Coast track in Sydney's Royal National Park.

Located around 1 hour's walk south of Bundeena, Wedding Cake Rock is a highlight along the famous Coast track. The pure white rock stands out against the harder sandstone of the coastal cliffs - its sharp edges and deep cracks giving it a unique shape, like a slice of cake perched high above the pounding ocean.

Meet at Central Station an 9 and catch train to Cronulla from Platform 25. From Cronulla we will take a Ferry to Bundeena. Please note that Opal card is not accepted on Bundeena Ferry and the ticket is around 7 AUD each way.

The walk is through Royal National park. We will walk around 10 Kms which would take around 5 hours. Get water (1 L at least), lunch, sun protection and wear comfortable shoes. Please carry cash for the Ferry tickets. There are cafes and super market at Bundeena where you can buy food and refreshments.

*** IMPORTANT NOTE***: The white colour is caused by iron leaching, which makes the sandstone layers dangerously soft, prone to cracking and at very high risk of collapse. For your safety, please don't stand or sit on the rock, or venture too close to cliff edges.
