English (Translate this text in English): Dive south from Sydney to the Royal National Park. Follow the signs in the national park to the Wottamolla Road Turn off. Follow to end of road and park in car-park. Gear up here and walk down the hill to the east as though accessing the lagoon. As you approach the lagoon seek a trail to the right of the lagoon that heads east and up the hill. follow this 500meters keeping as low as possible on the trail (a fork in the trail will have you going up and miss the beach completely). the trail meets the beach and you can access the site here. You can dive either side of the bay though the south side is best in unsettled weather. You can dive outside the headland if you wish.

Unfortunately, NSW National Parks and Wildlife service have stopped people entering the area at night. So a wonderful night dive here can only happen with some creative logistics. You will need to take two cars tot he site, one with an overnight camping permit form the NPAWS. You will drive both cars to the gates when they are closed, parking one car outside the gates. then travel with all your dive gear to the site car park. go do the dive as described above. Upon returning to your car drive back to your first car and change, then go home in the first car, leaving the second car inside the gates till the morning. Pick up the other car the next day.
