English (Translate this text in English): After entering the Kurnell National Park, travel along the main park road towards Cape Solander (Visitor centre, Sutherland Point). After 1,5km into the park you will see a old access road to the parking area (Yena parking area) on the left. This road has now been closed to stop rock fishermen from slipping off the rocks and being killed. So you will need to park at the top of the road and don gear here at the gate and walk to the site some 350 meters.

In the middle of the parking area, there is a trail that leads down to the cliff face. You can see the waters edge and walking trail from the top of the hill. Access the site at the marker on the map via the slopping rock covered with barnacles. You can dive this area to the north with interesting features in the shallows. Some divers prefer to enter from the point to the north of the slight headland some 100 meters from the point of the marker. Diving to the directly to the east will take you down to 27 meters at the sand, but first, over a rocky grotto full of Port Jackson sharks in winter. There is an offshore wall out on the sand and another big wall to the south, but its a long swim, interesting rock formations though. Your unlikely to see Sea Dragons here. If you wish to see them, go to "The Leap", "Inscription Point" or the "Steps" dive sites nearby. Diving to the south and close to shore you will find a number of caves and boulders in <9meters of water which can hide many Port Jackson sharks and Grouper and the other pelagic species.
