I did the walk from the ferry via the suburbs to the start of the coastal walk and down to Wedding Cake Rock.
Once I got to the park the walk was lovely. Getting to the start though was up hill along streets which didn’t have a footpath so walking along roads and peoples front lawns.
Walk is so beautiful going right along the cliff edge but not too close, always felt safe.
Wedding cake Rock itself is fenced off, you have to hold your camera over the fence to get a picture.
Walked back via Shelley beach which was a lot longer then I expected and path not as clear however I had the time so was not an issue.

Even without Wedding Cake Rock, the coastal walk between Bundeena and Wattamolla is just spectacular. That said, Wedding Cake Rock is my favourite spot on the track. Now fenced off for safety reasons, the rock juts out from a sheer cliff-face, high above the ocean. The perfectly horizontal bands of fine sandstone have weathered beautifully so it takes on the appearance of a creamy white layered cake. You can almost taste the marzipan.

This is a beautiful coastal walk on it's own. Stunning seascapes and good views along the way even at the 'Balconies'. The destination of our hike though, the Wedding cake rock was underwhelming. It's just one piece of rock jutting out. While it makes for a good picture, the entire area is fenced off (with quite a high fence which makes it possible to get only one perspective of the photo. (I'm aware it's closed for good reason because of a few people who've ruined it for everyone).

We parked in Bundeena at the end of Beachcomber avenue. From here it's a 1.5 - 2 hour return walk to the Wedding cake rock. Would still recommend the walk to the Balconies (15-20 min from the parking) and even to the Water-run (30-40 min from the parking). Both these are along the way to the Wedding cake rock.

The walk there is nice and easy, but quite exposed so definitely bring a hat/glasses. Walked there from Bundeena, there is a bathroom at the start of the trail. A few attractions on the way such as The Balconies.

We went there on a beautiful sunny day. Parked our car on Beachcomber Avenue. There was clear signage and toilet facilities near the entrance to the trail. It took us more than an hour to get to Wedding Cake Rock as we stopped and took photos along the coastal walk. We enjoyed the nice coastal scenery.

Check the route to Bundeena before you go. Farnell Avenue was closed for traffic to Bundeena and we had to go via McKell Avenue from Waterfall.

Even during these Covid times, a walk to Wedding Cake Rock is still a popular activity.
For those on public transport, the train to Cronulla station is not too crowded (2 of us had half a carriage in which to social Distance) and the ferry to Bundeena is a bargain at $7 each way.
A well signposted walk from the ferry to the coast and the journey begins.
During the week, the pathway is relatively busy, so I imagine the weekends would still be a busy time.
During this time of year, there is the chance of seeing whales along the coast.

Not as exciting as people make it out to be. Think Instagram etc has made it overly dramatic and ruined the spot a little bit. Still a nice natural landmark to walk past though.

The trail to the rock is wonderful. You can enjoy gorgeous ocean views with steep cliffs.
The rock itself, however, was really disappointing. I have known that it has been fenced because it it so frail that it could fall down at any time, but thought there was a lookout to see it clearly. The truth is, however, that the fence around the rock prevents me from viewing it. I could see it with my photos taken above the fence.
ウェディングケーキロックまでの道は素晴らしいです。切り立った崖と海の素晴らしい景色が楽しめます。けれどロック自体にはがっかりしました。ロックの脆さのためにフェンスで囲まれていることは知っていましたが、どこかから全景を見られると思っていました。でも実際は、フェンスが邪魔して見ることができず、フェンスの上からスマホを構えて撮った写真でしか全景は見えませんでした。

The coastal walk is nice, but the “wedding cake” is no longer safe to step on.

The “wedding cake” is a whitish piece of rock cliff that was naturally bleached due to loss of certain minerals.

Because of the natural erosion, the rock cliff is now brittle and may tumble down into the ocean below at anytime.

It is now fenced off with signs warning people to keep out.

But some people still take chances by scaling the tall fences and standing/sitting near the cliff edge for photos!

Don’t risk your life for a photo!

HOW TO GET THERE

1. Start the walk from the end of Beachcomber Avenue at Bundeena.

2. The walk is straight forward. You can’t get lost.

3. It will take 30-40 minutes one way.

Great ocean view and eroded rocks are so eye-catching. But you'll be surprise by the Wedding cake rock. How it formed, why only this piece is so spectacular. This rock is so fragile and cracked, please don't climb to stand on. If you like hiking, go ahead...
