See the Wedding Cake Rock



Wedding Cake Rock is a popular and very fragile rock formation located along the challenging Coast track in Sydney's Royal National Park. Experience the beauty of this natural wonder without risking your safety.

Please note

  • Wedding Cake Rock is unstable and has a fence around it for your safety.

  • Please stay behind the fenced off areas. Standing or sitting on the rock or cliff edges poses a very high safety risk.

  • This is a beautiful location and we encourage people to come and look at the spectacular rock formations and take photos–but the key is to enjoy the views from a safe distance.

  • The walking track to Wedding Cake Rock is rough and often steep and rocky. Remember to wear appropriate footwear and clothing, and allow at least 1 hour each way from Bundeena.

  • Phone reception on the track is limited. In an emergency, ring 000.

  • During total fire bans, the track to Wedding Cake Rock is closed. Check alerts and closures for Royal National Park before you visit.

  • It's a good idea to visit toilet facilities before starting your journey, and carry enough food and drinking water for the return trip.

Wedding Cake Rock is one of those phenomena that make you ask “Is it really natural?”. The perfect straight lines, right angle and bleached white rock can seem man-made. But it is 100% natural, and spectacular. So where is Wedding Cake Rock and how do you get there? We’ll also solve the mystery of why it’s so white.


  • Remember you need to walk through the bush to reach it, so don’t wear thongs or sandals.

  • There are often muddy sections so leave your pristine white sneakers at home too.

  • There are no shops in the national park so take plenty of water and whatever food you need

  • No rubbish bins either. Carry out what you carry in.

  • Toilets are near the ferry on Loftus St, Bundeena (none at start of track nor during walk)

  • There is no mobile phone reception along that section of the track so don’t rely on calling your mates to meet up.

  • Remember to wear a hat and sunscreen.
