The Ultimate Adventure: Stand Up Paddle & Figure Eight Pools


This unique mind blowing experience is going to awake the explorer within!


To begin our adventure, we immerse into the wild, paddling through the serene enclosed waters of the Port Hacking River, in The Royal National Park.


We paddle past a stunning variety of plant community and get to know a bit of the interesting variety of the Park’s wildlife, such as the native and the introduced species.


Once at the other end of the river, we get the chance to wind down a bit, share some moments of this unique experience and soak it all in while having our breakfast by the river.


Once brekkie is over and we get ourselves back together, it will be time to pump up some adrenaline again, as we are going to be taken to our launching point, towards the Figure Eight Pools (Garawarra Farm).


We then start our trekking down hill, going past stunning views on the way. It’s a little demanding walk and yet, your reward beside the wild and absolutely astonishing Burning Palms Beach is a refreshing dip into heaven.
