Werong is a bay in the Royal National Park, south of Sydney. It is accessible only by boat, or by walking track, from the top of the Escarpment down through steep rainforest and tree fern gullies. The beach is backed with coastal heath and old palms, and while only a short distance from a major metropolis, from the beach no sign of human habitation is visible. It is easy to picture the ancient indigenous people here, custodians for millennia. This is not a 'real' perspective of the beach, but one I have imagined from knowing the place; a gannet's eye view.
