Werrong Beach – Legal

Approximately 40 km south of Sydney near Stanwell Park is Werrong Beach, set in the Royal National Park. Gazetted in 1879, this was Australia’s first National Park and only the second in the world.

From Sydney take the Princes Highway south to the F6 Freeway, and follow the signs toward Stanwell Park until you turn left to Otford Lookout. Go past the Royal National Park sign and park beyond the shop. From here walk up the good path to the Werrong Beach and Burning Palms Clifftop Walk. The path then descends steeply to Werrong Beach. The total distance around 1.5 km and steep in places, so it is not suitable for the elderly or the handicapped.

Werrong Beach is a large amphitheatre about 300 metres long, surrounded by cliffs with a grassed area behind the beach.

Myrtle Beach – Unofficial

Just north of Batemans Bay turn east off the Princes Highway to Durras. Turn right and continue behind the caravan park onto Old Coast Road. About 1.5 km down this road you will find a car park for Myrtle Beach. It is then only a short walk to this unofficial clothing optional beach.
