Get and early start on this special half-day tour on Australia Day where you can join us for a hike in the Royal National Park to explore, swim and visit the insta-famous Figure 8 Pools!
Head on a guided hike in the worlds 2nd oldest National Park through beautiful coastal heathland and eucalypt rainforest along part of the Coast Track in the Royal National Park. Enjoy the beautiful scenery and coastal views along the 6km return (3.7 mi) trek spotting native wildlife, birds and even Wallabies along the way. Our Coastal hike includes some steep sections, hiking uphill, uneven terrain and rock hopping which requires a medium to high level of fitness from all guests.
Walk through Burning Palms Beach and see the heritage listed Coastal Shacks and learn about the local area and how the shacks came to be. Rock hop across the headland to reach the Figure 8 Pools and spend some time to explore this spectacular area, swim in naturally formed rock pools of all sizes and shapes including the famous Figure 8! Then grab your insta-famous #figure8pools photo too while you are here!
After the hike back from the pools we jump back on the bus and drive back to Sydney where you can enjoy the rest of the Australia Day celebrations of your choosing! The tour departs at one pickup point in Sydney near to the Central Train station at 5:45am and returns back to the city around 12:30pm at central.
