Visit the Royal National Park or as the locals like to call it, the ‘Nasho’, on an eco-adventure tour from Sydney and eplore this spectacular area found just 37 Km (23 miles) and less than an hour drive south of Sydney. See one of Illawarra’s best lookout spots, also known internationally as a major hang gliding point at Bald Hill Lookout for spectacular coastal views and drive along the famous Sea Cliff Bridge on the Grand Pacific Drive for breathtaking views of the south coast.

Enjoy a guided hike in the Royal National Park through coastal heathland and rainforest along the Coast Track and take in the beautiful scenery and coastal views along the 6km return (3.8mi) hike. With jaw dropping mountain views, rolling hills, aqua colour water, unique rustic coastal shacks, native animals and the chance to spot whales (May through November) you will be overwhelmed with an abundant supply of epic photos! (This coastal hike includes slippery and uneven terrain, steep sections, an uphill hike, rock hopping and requires a medium-high level of fitness.)

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. Rock hop around the headlands 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! Grab your insta-famous #figure8pools photo while here!

As a proud Eco-Certified Tour Operator, the adventure guides clean up rubbish on the hike back and encourage guests to help in their effort to keep the National Park clean. After the hike up the mountains, head off to visit a little slice of paradise down the south coast at Wattamolla where the waterfall, lagoon and beach are at your fingertips. Take a walk up to Providential Point Lookout if you like, enjoy panoramic views and see the impressive sandstone cliffs and headlands surrounding the local area.

After a full days adventure, sit back and relax for the drive out of the Royal National Park back to Sydney.
