About the walk:

The track takes you along a fire route, past some Aboriginal engravings and through some beautiful bushland. Follow the signs towards “Resolute Beach” and you will end up at the top of some steep stairs that head down towards the beach. Make your way down these steps, to the bottom, where you will be greeted with blue water, an empty beach and beautiful views. On your way back, you have the option of going via West Head lookout (follow the path towards your right, just after the first set of stairs off the beach) or you can go back the way you came.

About the beach: 

Resolute Beach is a 60m long sandy beach – with some shade, calm water perfect for swimming and beautiful views of Palm Beach and Barrenjoey Lighthouse. Look out for Goanna’s (Monitor lizard native to Australia) along the path and on the beach.

We had a wonderful day here, swimming, tanning, picnicking and enjoying the peace and quiet of nature and we got a good workout on your way back up the stairs! We cannot wait to visit Resolute Beach again!
