The Famous Figure 8 Pools in Sydney

One sunny day, I hopped in the car with Natalie and Michael, and we headed into the Royal National Park to visit the insta-famous Figure 8 Pools. My au pair family had highly recommended it, and after seeing the instagram photos, we knew we had to check it out.

After we parked, we took the trail to Burning Palms Beach. The hike is a moderate and hilly. It’s just about 45 minutes to the beach. Make sure to bring your water!

Once we got down to the beach, we had to do some minor rock climbing to get to the pools.

The total cost of this trip was $12 for parking. If you’re visiting Sydney, I’d highly recommend checking out these pools and a few other hikes in the Royal National Park.

When you visit the Figure 8 Pools, make sure to bring your bathers (that’s Australian for swimsuit), a picnic, and plenty of water. We also had a bit of rain, so make sure you’re prepared for all types of weather.
