Clovelly to Maroubra
Walking Track Description
One of Sydney‘s most popular walks, covering a 7km section of the Sydney Coastal Walkway, the track from Clovelly to Maroubra starts south of Waverly Cemetery, on the south side of Clovelly Beach. While there are a few sections of the path that leave the water’s edge the walk generally follows the shoreline, alternating from concrete to boardwalk to beach sand.
From the carpark, follow the coast around to Gordon’s Bay, a top spot for snorkeling among the local Blue Groper. In fact snorkeling here is so popular, there are a series of stainless steel plaques positioned in the water to guide snorkelers from one underwater feature to another.
From Gordon’s bay follow the path through Dunnigham Reserve all the way to the noth headland of Coogee Beach, a less-commercial, more laid-back version of Bondi Beach.
Heading south past Coogee Bay and the views of Wedding Cake Island, continue on to Lurline Bay. At this point you may find yourself leaving the water for a few blocks of suburbs but you’ll soon find yourself on Marine Parade, looking across the broad sandy flats of Maroubra to the old rifle range.
To walk more of Sydney’s beautiful beaches, start your walk further north and take in the Bondi to Bronte section of the Coastal Walk. Or for an even longer, more remote walk, try a section of the Coastal Track in the Royal National Park, that runs from Bundeena to Wattamolla.
