The Location

Audley Dance Hall Cafe is a natural starting point for an adventure around the Royal National Park. After a challenging ride or bushwalk, visitors can start or finish here with a glass of Champagne or cold-pressed juice and piece of house-made cake.  

Audley is located within Royal National Park, Australia’s oldest national park and the second oldest in the world. First established in the 1900s as a recreational village, Audley remains popular with everyone from holiday-makers to honeymooners.

Located on the outskirts of southern Sydney, in Sutherland Shire, at the start of the Grand Pacific Drive, Audley is a 10-minute drive from Sutherland, 45-minute drive from Sydney and 40-minute drive from Wollongong.

Audley Dance Hall Cafe is housed within the historic Audley Dance Hall building, which was built in the 1940s across from Audley Weir. The café spills out onto grassy parklands where you can enjoy the sights and sounds of nature in the sun-splashed valley.

Visitors to the Royal National Park can hire a rowboat, aqua bike, canoe or kayak  from Audley Boatshed and paddle around the Hacking River and Kangaroo Creek. There are mountain bikes for hire here, too. 

Audley Dance Hall Café is next to The Royal National Park Visitor Centre, open daily from 8.30am to 4.30pm. Ask staff at the centre to find a trail to suit – from easy family-friendly walks to more challenging hikes. You can also plan additional day trips in and around the Royal National Park.

Please call 02 9542 6066 for all cafe enquiries. We are currently operating as a takeaway cafe. We have some seating for you to use or you can bring a picnic rug and explore the Royal National Park. We are open 7 days 8:30am - 3:30pm.
