|Behind me, the South Coast walking track from Gairie Beach.|
About 30kms south of Sydney, lies the Royal National Park established in 1879, the second NP to be gazetted in the world, after Yellowstone. It covers about 130 square kms (about 32,000 acres).
|In front of me, the Pacific Ocean aka Tasman Sea. Above me, the cliff to the National Park.|
The Coast Track is a 2 day 27km walk with spectacular views some of which I will show you this week.
|Ahead of me, the track to the possessive tenancy settlement of North Era.|
North Era, South Era and Burning Palms are accessible only on foot or by small water craft. They were established during the Depression and tenancy within the one family has been allowed to continue ever since, with strict rules on development. Gairie Beach is the only beach with vehicular access.
