Garawarra Farm carpark to figure eight pools is a 6km, grade 4 return hike, located in Royal National Park, New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 2 hrs 30 mins to complete.

Hike Summary

This return walk starts from the old Garawarra Farm car park and heads down the ridge through the Royal National Park to the coast. The walk then follows the coast through Burning Palms beach and around the base of the headland to the famous Figure Eight Pools. This walk explores 4 distinct environments and gives a great cross section of what the park has to offer. The Figure Eight pools are on an ocean rock platform. Rock platforms can be very dangerous places especially at high tide and during high seas. Only plan to visit the rock platform at low tide and low seas (see BOM website for forecast). Please also wear appropriate footwear for the walk and rock platforms.
