The Jibbon Head Circuit is the shorter section of a longer walk we’ve done from Bundeena to Marley Head in the Royal National Park. It’s a mostly flat walk at the northern most end of the park, and offers very attractive coastal scenery for relatively little effort, including secluded looking beaches and rocky sections. When combined with the section of the classic Coast Track between Bundeena and Marley Head it makes for an excellent coastal walk of moderate difficulty, and all within easy reach of Sydney.
We used notes in A Day in the Bush, (refer to the first section of the Bundeena to Marley Head walk), and there are also notes online at Wildwalks for a shorter version, and a longer version. We did the longer version to continue along the Coast Track.
Starting somewhere in Bundeena near the water (we park in Eric St), walk along Jibbon Beach and follow the track clockwise around the headland, either circling back around to Jibbon Beach, or else taking a left turn after Shelly Beach to head inland to the alternate start of the Coast Track near Beachcomber Avenue. This inland stretch is on a sandy fire trail. From the Coast Track you can set off east then south along the coast to Marley Head, and beyond if you like. Another option would be to walk back to the start through suburbia (eg, Beachcomber Ave then Eric St).
