We have the only license to run tours to the Figure 8 Pools!
Enjoy a guided hike in the Worlds 2nd oldest National Park through beautiful coastal rainforest spotting wildlife along the way. Learn the insightful history of the area and flora and fauna from your passionate guide, explore at the Figure 8 Pools and swim in natural rock pools of all shapes and sizes!
Our afternoon Figure 8 Pools Adventure & Hike allows those who are looking for a tour in Sydney with a later start in the day (and a bit of a sleep in!) or for those wanting a half day tour to visit the Figure 8 Pools instead of the full day tour.
What You'll Get
Visit the Royal National Park or as the locals like to call it, the ‘Nasho’, on our eco-adventure tour from Sydney. Explore this spectacular area found just 37 Km (23 miles) and less than an hour drive south of Sydney.
Enjoy a later start on our afternoon half day tour from Sydney and hike to the Figure 8 Pools in the Royal National Park along the Coast Track. Take in the beautiful scenery and coastal views along the 6km (3.7 mi) return guided hike. With jaw dropping mountain views, rolling hills, aquamarine coloured water, wildlife and unique coastal shacks you will be overwhelmed with an abundant supply of epic photos!
Walk through Burning Palms Beach and see the heritage listed Coastal Shacks and hear the fascinating facts about the local area and how the ‘shacks’ came to be. We’ll rock hop around the headlands to reach the Figure 8 Pools where you spend time to explore this spectacular area where you can swim in naturally formed rock pools of all sizes and shapes including the famous Figure 8. We’ll help you grab that insta-famous #figure8pools photo too!
After exploring at the Figure 8 Pools, we hike back up the mountain to the top and make our way out of the Royal National Park back to Sydney.
