The picturesque village of Bundeena is located on the Cronulla Coast in Southern Sydney, and offers visitors a quick and easy escape from the fast pace of the city to a setting of secluded bays, beaches, and bushland. Among the 2700 residents fortunate to call this area home are artisans, small business tourism operators, shopkeepers, and others who enjoy living close to nature. The village borders the south shore of Port Hacking and are otherwise surrounded by the beautiful and historic Royal National Park.

Bundeena takes its name from an Aboriginal word meaning “noise like thunder” and has a distinct history. You will find traces of the original inhabitants, the Dharawal people, in rock carvings and middens (seafood shell piles). In addition to its famous artists and tranquil setting, Bundeena is known as the gateway to the 26 km Coast Walk through the Royal National Park to Otford.

Bundeena offers a wealth of beautiful scenery and plenty of fun to entice the whole family. Visitors will find plenty of outdoor activities, shops and cafes, and overnight accommodation, only an hour south of Central Sydney.

Bundeena’s beaches provide the ideal location for a day in, on or near the water. Whether you enjoy swimming, snorkelling, fishing, kayaking, boating, fitness classes, or just plain relaxing you’ll find what you’re looking for in this hidden paradise. There are four beaches within easy walking distance of the centre of Bundeena:

  • Bonnie Vale Beach within the Royal National Park has a large car park, picnic tables, barbeques, campgrounds, and shower and toilet facilities. Kayak rentals are available on the beach.
  • Horderns Beach is located next to the ferry wharf, with shops and facilities close by.
  • Gunyah Beach is a small nearly hidden sand and rock beach, accessible at low tide over the rocks southeast of the wharf.
  • Jibbon Beach is a favourite among the locals, with its secluded crescent-shaped sandy strand that fronts the bush.

So, enjoy Bundeena – the gateway to Royal National Park from Dave & Nicki Lee. If you are looking to stay a while in the area – we have accommodation in Bundeena.
