Time Out says

Visit the Figure Eight Rock Pools, surf at Garie Beach or walk the 26 kilometres beautiful coastline

It’s less than an hour’s drive from the CBD, yet so many Sydneysiders haven’t stepped foot in the pristine 15,091 hectares of bushland that lines the coast south of Sydney. Whether you want to swim, trek, picnic, swim, bike ride, swim or just GTFO of Sydney for the day, the Royal National Park will provide an outdoors, adventure-filled day out.
The full Royal coastal walk is 26 kilometres and takes two days – but you can explore portions of it to get a taste of each part. Check out our guide to the Royal National Park to get the most out of your trip
