Curra Moors Circuit, Royal National Park, Sydney

This is a nice walk through heathland in the Royal National Park, with views of the famous Eagle Rock at halfway, and with a little bit of exploring, views of two waterfalls that enter the sea.

The Curra Moors Circuit passes through heathland in the Royal National Park. There are views of Eagle Rock at the halfway point, and with just a little bit of exploring, views of two waterfalls that enter the sea.

The walk starts inland on Sir Bertram Stevens Drive, and takes in a section of the famous Coast Track before returning inland to the start. We used track notes in A Day in the Bush, and there’s info on the NPWS website.

The Scenery

The track was a stream for much of the way due to recent rain and badly draining soils.

One of many shots I have taken of Eagle Rock. I quite like this wider angle, taken from the edge of the cliffs. The eagle shape is more obvious in my other shots, which I’ll post on soon, and you can probably find with a search of my site.

Rough seas. I’m near the edge of another waterfall into the sea (bottom left).

These cockatoos were getting a bit feisty and hence their crests were up. This scene in Audley, where we often stop for a coffee after our RNP walks.

A couple of shots from Govenor Game Lookout, which is not far from the start of the walk.
