Cronulla is the southernmost beach suburb of Sydney, bordering the Royal National Park. Were located approx 35km south of the city centre.

If arriving by car we are at the eastern end of the Sutherland Shire peninsula: from the city, its south on Highway 1 veering onto 64, continuing over the Captain Cook bridge and then follow signs to Cronulla.

From the South Coast heading north, once past the Royal National Park on Princes Highway 1 turn right onto President Avenue, and then follow down to Caringbah; both feed onto the Kingsway, and were almost the first business on the right as you enter Cronulla.

By train were about 50 mins away from the city CBD take the Illawarra (blue) line train from Central (platform 24/25), Town Hall or Kings Cross to Cronulla station. From the airport it is also about 50 mins, catch the train to Wolli Creek station then change to the Illawarra line.

When exiting Cronulla Station cross the road, then turn left and walk along the main shopping street (Cronulla Street). This turns into a pedestrianized plaza, walk to the end and youll reach the Kingsway main road. Turn left and were ~100 metres on the left. Walk past the police station until opposite the 7-Eleven we are above the Mexican restaurant El Sol.
