Darook Park Beach

Home > Sydney > Parks | Beaches | Picnic Spots
Published October 19th 2009
If you are looking for a beach destination that is easy to reach, no parking hassels and filled with activity then Cronulla coast in southern Sydney would fit the bill. Reachable by train (a 55 minute journey from Sydney Central), this is the location that is ideal for those looking for scenery, parks, history, swimming, surfing and hiking. There are beaches on the north coast and south coast of Cronulla and parks that provide respite from the heat. Darook Park (named after the Darook tribe of Aborigines) and its beach, located on the southern coast, in Gunnamatta Bay, is a tucked away treasure, offering manicured parklands and a picturesque swimming spot.

This sandy south Cronulla beach is a favorite place for a beach picnic, swimming and sand castle building. Overlooking the Gunnamatta Bay and the bushlands off the far side, this southside beauty has plenty of shady spots on the lawns and sheltered swimming in the protected waters of the bay away from ocean waves.

Popular for its scenery and accessibility, Darook Park Beach is a popular picnic and also a wedding destination. If you want to fish on the weekends you can try your luck here and might end up with a flathead. The park is child friendly and also features onsite toilets, picnic shelters and a children's playground. It's also walking distance to Bundeena Ferry where you can hop the ferry to Bundeena if the fish aren't biting.
