A Weekend in Bundeena

Bundeena Weekend Escape – Walk, indulge, relax…

Bundeena is literally sitting pretty on the fringes of the Royal National Park. It's the sort of place where even people in a hurry seem to be in slow motion.

Enjoy a gin tasting, settle in for a high tea or indulge in a relaxing massage. Of course you must also embark on one of the many off-the-grid activities…

Bundeena walks, boats, kayaks

Boats & BasketsA perfect picnic Your date will swoon at everything from the sandwiches to the set-up at a beach picnic curated by Boats & Baskets that includes a private pick-up @boatsandbaskets  

Shut down the laptop It’s time to slow down and look at the landscape through a wide-angle lens on a tour into Cabbage Tree Basin with Bundeena Kayaks @bundeenakayaks

Impressive engravings Jibbon Loop Track is steeped in Indigenous history and the main draw is the engravings and middens at the east end of the beach. During winter, you can sometimes spot whales from the clifftops along the track.

Lace up your boots Royal National Park is Australia’s oldest and you will see a lot of the rugged wilderness it is known for along the walk from Bundeena Drive to Little Marley Beach

Toast the sunset Engage the experts from Lost and Found Wellness Adventures who will guide you from Bundeena to Marley Beach on sunset, where you will enjoy gourmet food and drink and maybe even spot a whale or two. 

Outside of artsy Bundeena lies a series of spectacular trails that draw avid hikers and mountain bikers alike. Follow in the footsteps of an expert on the walk from Bundeena to Wattamola

Bundeena Indulge

Rejuvenate Start your long weekend the right way with a one-hour detoxifying dry body brush, relaxation massage and facial at Kuyen Medispa, a boutique clinic in Bundeena.

Chin chin Enjoy a great gin cocktail or two or a gin tasting or high tea at I Grill, which has more than 20 gins to choose from including Ruby Wednesday, a small bespoke batch-distilled product born in the Shire.

Update your décor Select a few statement pieces from My Vintage Beach on the main strip, which sells everything from cushions to ceramics to brews (coffee) with views. 

A wander around Bundeena takes a unique turn when it coincides with the Bundeena Maianbar Art Trail on the first Sunday of the month, where you can knock on the studio doors of artists.
