About Stanwell Park

Stanwell Park is the first of several pretty coastal towns south of the Royal National Park, on Lawrence Hargrave Drive. It's a popular beach for surfing and picnics and an easy day trip from Sydney.

The hills that rise sharply from the coast to the escarpment and the strong air currents make Stanwell Tops a prime spot for hang gliding. Local adventure tour operators can take you along for the ride of a lifetime on a tandem flight; alternatively sit back and enjoy the panoramic views from Bald Hill Lookout. The Grand Pacific Drive passes through Stanwell Park on its spectacular route along the coast to the South Coast. Stop at Sea Cliff Bridge, located between Coalcliff and Clifton, for a walk along this engineering masterpiece.
