Flat Rock Creek

And Walk






15 mins

294 m Return


21 m

Moderate track

This short walk explores a piece of the Royal National Park, with lovely wildflowers in spring, and some great sandstone rock formations. The main highlight is the creek. Flat Rock Creek, as the name suggests, has a solid and flat bed. The rock is red in colour and the water flows across the width of the creek. This spot is great on a sunny day to contrast the blue sky with the red rock.

Curra Moors car park to Garie Beach

Download & Print Map and Notes




1 hr 45 mins

4.4 km One way


65 m

Hard track

This walk is another Royal National Park classic. The walk comes off a ridge to join with the Coastal Track’s tour of the beaches. The walk starts at the small Curra Moors car park and heads through the heath and bush to the rock shelf at the coast. The track ends at Garie Beach. The beach has a kiosk and is an excellent spot for a swim (when patrolled) and a picnic. This walk is good for those who can get dropped off at the top and meet their driver at the bottom, or you may choose to do a car shuffle, or retrace your steps back to Curra Moors car park.
