Description

Experience an eco-friendly adventure from Sydney, hiking and exploring in the beautiful Royal National Park to the unique Figure 8 Pools. Visit secluded beaches, enjoy swimming in natural rock pools and aquamarine water, spot native wildlife, see beautiful rolling hills and cliffs as we explore the Worlds 2nd oldest National Park.

Join your experienced guide for an epic experience just south of Sydney. Visit Bald Hill Lookout at Stanwell Tops and take in spectacular coastal views, drive along the famous Sea Cliff Bridge then launch the next adventure by lacing up your hiking shoes and beginning a coastal traverse through littoral rainforest with spectacular scenery.

See the Heritage-listed coastal shacks of the area and hear the fascinating history before rock-hopping several headlands to arrive at the Figure Eight Pools—a cluster of natural rock pools that is only accessed at low tide when surf conditions are right.

Swim and cool off in the pools, get your famous Instagram photo and explore the area before making the hike up the mountain. Keep your eyes peeled for Wallabies, Water Dragons, Lyre Birds and even Dolphins and Whales during the migration season.

Travel to the nearby Wattamolla Lagoon & Beach, a popular locals waterhole to explore more of the park's delightful environments. Take a short walk to the headland, swim in aqua marine coloured ocean or relax on the calm lagoon spotting native birds in the area before driving back to Sydney.
