It is bounded to the west by the Illawarra railway, by wooded foreshores sloping to Port Hacking in the north and the surfing beaches and rugged cliffs by the Pacific Ocean to the east. By road, the Park is 36 kilometres south of Sydney and 47 kilometres north of Wollongong. Road access is via the Prince's Highway.
