Head for an Adventure down the south coast on the ONLY tour that visits the Figure 8 Pools in the Royal National Park! Join our passionate Aussie guides on our eco-friendly tour as they take you to hidden beaches, hike in coastal rainforest, see the stunning views, swim and explore in the famous Figure 8 Pools and meet new friends!

Our Figure 8 Pools Coastal Adventure Tour is a must do tour from Sydney that takes you out safely to explore this spectacular area just 37 Km (23 miles) and only 45 minutes south of Sydney.

Enjoy the scenic drive in what the locals call the ‘Nasho’ (Royal National Park) and take in breathtaking views of the south coast at Bald Hill Lookout in Stanwell Tops. Head out on a 6km (3.7 mi) return hike in the Worlds 2nd oldest National Park through coastal rainforest with changing terrain and spectacular scenery that includes some steep sections and requires a medium to high level of fitness. Spot native wildlife and dolphins and even whales off the coast during the migration season!

Walk through Burning Palms Beach and see the heritage listed Coastal Shacks, continue along the coast where you rock hop across the headland to reach the Figure 8 Pools. Spend some time to relax and explore this spectacular area, cool off in the rock pools and get your insta-famous #figure8pool photo!

After the hike back we take you to a famous surfing beach at Garie beach in the Royal National Park where you enjoy a picnic lunch with a selection of wraps and nibblies. Then explore, swim and relax at one of the local lagoons and beaches at Wattamolla, where the Waterfall joins the lagoon and beach. Take in panoramic views and see the impressive cliffs and headlands by taking a short walk up to Providential Point Lookout if you like.

After a big day of hiking and adventure we head back to Sydney for a free drink at a local travellers bar with new friends!

Depending on tide times the activities can be reversed in the day in order to reach the Figure Eight Pools at low tide.

  • Safety

    Working with the National Parks and Wildlife Services, we set the standards high by providing a fun but safe tour to the Figure 8 Pools for travellers and visitors. This is backed by our knowledge and experience in remote wilderness safety, adventure guiding and ocean and beach safety. All tours include an ocean and beach safety chat and guides closely monitor wave conditions when at the pools. As an extra safe measure, our guides also carry a wilderness first aid pack with all the important first aid items plus other safety equipment as one can never be too prepared!
  • Need to Know

    The Figure 8 Pools can be dangerous to visit during high tide and big swell conditions as they are located on the rock ledge of the ocean, therefore we take all necessary steps to ensure guests safety and tours only operate during low tide, low swell and safe weather conditions. If conditions are not predicted safe then an alternative activity will be offered on the day in place of the pools, or we may re-schedule the tour.
