This is a 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!

Enjoy a guided hike in the worlds 2nd oldest National Park through 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 and birds along with whales and dolphins off the coast during the whale migration season. Our Coastal hike includes some steep sections, rock hopping and requires a medium to high level of fitness.

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 drive back to Sydney where you can enjoy the rest of the Australia Day celebrations of your choosing! The adventure starts at 5:45am at our 1 pickup location and returns back to the city around 12:30pm where you can get into the Australia Day festivities from there!
