The Royal National Park in Southern Sydney is Australia's oldest National Park and the second oldest in the world (after Yellowstone in the USA). It is hard to believe that there is such a beautiful place right in Australia's biggest city! Wattamolla beach is one of our families favorite places. It is full of history too because GrumpyDaddy's family also visited there many times when he was growing up.
To get to the beach, there is a lovely walk along the edge of the lagoon.
There is the option of swimming in the lagoon, or braving the surf!!
The fence and warning signs are supposed to act as a deterrent to stop people from jumping into the lagoon from the top of the waterfall. If you look at the top right, you will see that these measures were not enough to deter everyone.
We last visited Watamala after my kids first taste at' high patform ocean diving' at Watson's bay. As the bigger kids were jumping into the lagoon, I could see my children watching them; the wheels turning in their little heads, begging the question...".maybe we could".....
........"not a chance!!".....
