Beginning at Wattamolla we walk across the sand to the picturesque inlet a small beach trapping the waters of Wattamolla Creek to form a large lagoon.. We make our way along the coast and along the shoreline to just above the rocks to the pleasant cove of Little Marley. Little Marley is an arc of yellow sand backed by grassy flats dominated by she-oaks. We then walk to beautiful Marley Beach. There are few untouched and totally natural beaches left in Sydney, but Marley Beach is one of them. A large freshwater lagoon behind the dunes teems with bird life and is a favourite haunt of deer. From here the track runs close to the cliff edge where great blocks of sandstone have fallen from the cliff face and constant weathering has opened up long, deep cracks in the flat rock. The beautiful colours and patterns in the bare sandstone are caused by iron and other minerals seeping into the white quartz sand. The views from here are stunning. We then head on to Jibbons Head, the relict cliff-top dunes we will explore between Marley Beach and Jibbon were formed during the sea-level rise roughly 10,000 years ago. Once we reach Jibbon Head, we discover on a large flat expanse of sandstone, the Aboriginal inhabitants of this area the Dharawal people engraved a number of subjects into the rock. Some are distinct, but you should be able to make out three large whales or sharks, a stingray, a jellyfish, a male figure with six fingers assumed to be a lawmaker, a wallaby, a shield and a tortoise. Please ensure to walk with great care while accessing this site). From Jibbons Head we follow the track through coastal heathland to Bundeena where our walking journey ends. Complimentary transfers are available back to the Sydney CBD, or at the Sir Stamford Hotel are available.
