Kayak Hire, Bundeena, 4 Hours: Looking for a safe, water based activity close to Sydney? Then why not hire a kayak for half a day and explore the wonders of Bundeena and the Royal National Park, 50 minutes south of Sydney CBD. Pack a lunch, hire a kayak and head off on an amazing adventure.
Located on the wonderful beach-front of Bonnie Vale Picnic Grounds at Bundeena is your base for a great day out.

The kayaks have plenty of storage space so you can pack a huge picnic lunch and head out for a day of adventure.
