Beaches, Cliffs and a Golf Course
Walk Your Way

Gorgeous, sunny winter days are perfect for scenic walks - long or short it doesn't matter, just get out into the open and feel the light wind on your face, smile at the sun shining and breathe in nature. You will feel good, stay fit, learn something new about this beautiful city we are fortunate to live in. There are so many hidden and not so hidden walking tracks inviting you to perhaps walk a path less trodden or one marked out by many footsteps before yours. Trailing these tracks on an overcast day gives a different perspective too and rugging up motivates you to walk just a little more briskly!

Congwong Beach

Congwong Beach Walk, Botany Bay National Park at La Perouse is a lovely, easy walk that takes you from Congwong Beach. There is parking available along Anzac Parade, cnr Henry Head Lane, La Perouse. From here it's a 100m walk to Congwong Beach. A lovely little beach, hidden behind trees, and offering spectacular views across the Pacific Ocean and towards Bare Island. A great spot for a swim or picnic before heading towards Cape Banks and Henry Head, both just an easy 1.7km walk, taking you past WWII bunkers and through the greens of NSW Golf Club.

The Pacific Ocean coastline and cliffs provide an entertaining display of waves crashing against the rocks and upwards on the cliff faces. The ocean has a way of mesmerising you and giving you a sense of calm and the chance to clear your head, breathe in the salty air, and feel totally relaxed.

After you have completed this walk, take a stroll over the old wooden bridge to Bare Island where the views are even more breathtaking. I'll leave it to your imagination, discovery, and photographs to capture how you feel and what you see on this beautiful walk.

When you have finished your exploring, whether it's early morning, lunchtime or afternoon, there are lovely cafes and restaurants to choose for a coffee, lazy lunch or afternoon treat. I can't think of a nicer way to spend a Saturday or Sunday!
