Red Cedar Flat Picnic Area
Near Otford and in the southern section of Royal National Park, rustic Red Cedar Flat picnic area is an ideal no-fuss lunch spot. Whether you’re on a leisurely car tour of the park, or prepping for an adventure, you’ll be able to pull up and park easily. It’s also an easy spot to check your gear and have a quick bite before heading off on a road cycling tour, or stepping out on one of the many walking tracks on offer in the park.
Arriving at the picnic spot, stretch your legs on a couple of small loop walks nearby. Unpack a picnic on the tables, and enjoy lunch, followed by a bit of birdwatching.
If you’re keen to explore further, try Governor Game lookout in the north, or a stop at nearby Otford lookout – it’s well worth it for spectacular views up and down the coast. If you’re in need of a refreshing swim, head to Garie Beach picnic area.
