THE PALMS CAFE | STANWELL PARK
In the heart of scenic Stanwell Park lies an unassuming little cafe:
The Palms Cafe. Drive too fast around the bendy road and you’ll miss it completely.
ENJOY A FEW OF OUR LOCAL ATTRACTIONS
STANWELL PARK BEACH
Stanwell Park is one of the most photographed beaches in Australia. Stanwell Park Beach is nestled in a valley and set dramatically against the steep, forested escarpment cliffs. It's famous for paragliding and hang gliding from Bald Hill down to its beach. Stanwell Park Beach is a popular beach for surfing. It's also popular with surfers due to the bar breaks. Swimmers can enjoy a patrolled beach.

FIND US ALONG | THE GRAND PACIFIC DRIVE
"The Grand Pacific Drive passes through Stanwell Park on its spectacular route along the coast to the South Coast. Be sure to stop at Sea Cliff Bridge, located between Coalcliff and Clifton, for a walk along this engineering masterpiece. The bridge winds along the coast with the ocean below it. A truly spectacular sight."
