BAREFOOT DOWNUNDER GRANTED COMPETITIVE 3-YEAR LICENSE TO THE FIGURE EIGHT POOLS, ROYAL NATIONAL PARK
Barefoot Downunder has successfully won the tender for a 3-year licence to run their unique Figure Eight Pools day tour in the Royal National Park (worlds 2nd oldest National Park) on Sydney’s doorstep. “It is exciting to have created a new tour in Sydney that showcases the beautiful Royal National Park that is right at our doorstep,” Co-owner, Adam Hammond said. “Over the last year, we have worked really hard in providing a fun and safe experience for travellers to visit this incredible area and are gearing up for a bigger season ahead.”
The Figure 8 Pools Coastal Adventure and Hike Tour includes a hike along the Coast Track to the awe-inspiring Figure of Eight Pools, a walk through Burning Palms Beach to see the heritage listed ‘Shack Communities’, Garie’s Beach for a relaxing picnic lunch, swimming and exploring at Wattamolla Lagoon and Beach, Bald Hill Lookout at Stanwell Tops, and finishing with a drink back at Side Bar, Sydney’s local travellers bar.
Barefoot Downunder see themselves as an industry leader and practice ecosustainability on their tours, which includes recycling and picking up rubbish during the day to help keep the parks clean. They are becoming eco-certified this year, which has already been a big part of their business practice.
“We are very proud to have won the tender and endeavour to continue providing a well managed and safe experience. Not only is our tour about the figure Eight Pool, it is about increasing others awareness of respecting the environment and future users of the park,” Co-owner Debbie Hammond said.
Barefoot Downunder successfully trialled the tour for one year before being granted a 3-year competitive allocated license to continue operating the tours to the Figure Eight Pools in the Royal National Park following a competitive tender process.
