What a great way to see Sydney’s beautiful bush land and natural wonders! The Royal National Park walk takes you through different kinds of vegetation before ending up at the lovely Garie Beach, giving all visitors a glimpse into the diverse range of plant and animal life that Sydney boasts. The guides are great, and are very familiar with the area, meaning that you get the best experience possible! I would highly recommend using Emu Trekkers to anyone interested in exploring Sydney and contributing to a great cause!
A fabulous hike finished off with a dip!

What a great hike! Only a stones throw from sydney CBD. With an easy train ride away from Sydney we disembarked in the midst of the Royal National Park. After following the rugged coast for 10km we got the chance to walk beneath the canopy, grassy plains and lunch on the beach. Our guides Sandra and Tad were fantastic and provided us with information on the cabin communities and the 'widow maker' eucalyptus.
We got to cool off in the ocean at Garie beach so don't forget your swimmers!
