I went on the Jibbon Aboriginal Tour and enjoyed every minute of it, even though it started raining. Our guide Peter shared his huge knowledge about Royal National Park with us and even took the time to give me some tips for the rest of my holiday. I really enjoyed the day and would highly recommend booking with Sydney Coast... More

Terrific that you didn't let a little rain dampen your experience! I'm sure Peter's enthusiasm helped and, like all our guides, he would have wanted you to enjoy your day with us no matter what. Thank you for your lovely feedback, I'll pass it on to the team. -Tara More

A terrific 2-day walk led by Ian from Sydney Coast Walks - well organised and informative. You only need to dress appropriately for hiking and carry a day pack. The rest if sorted for you. Could not have been happier with this company.

We are avid walkers but in 30 years of living in Sydney had never walked the Marley Track in the Royal National Park. I can't believe we took so long to do it, it's jam packed with stunning scenery. It served to remind us how lucky we are in Sydney to have such a wonderful national park so close to... More

Thank you for your review. It was unfortunate that on this instance the helicopter drop meant we couldn't access the site. This is the only time it's happened but the great thing is that Parks are improving the aboriginal carving site for future enjoyment. Cheers, Tara More

The tour was well organised and friendly but do not underestimate how hard it is especially on the last day after Burning Palms and the ascent to the lookout. Your last chance to be picked up is Garie Beach - take it if you have had enough!

Thank you for joining our two day Wattamolla Hiking Tour. In our "Recommended Fitness" section about this walk, we include a brief that hikers will walk up to 16km (10 miles) each day and that it will be over uneven terrain, including walking on soft sand and numerous steep sections which some people may find challenging.

With limited time for exploring I undertook this walk to enjoy more of Sydney's native green spaces at the same time as having an opportunity to learn more about Australia's early history. The day was hot but a bag full of snacks and frequent water refuelling stops meant no one became dehydrated or over exposed to the sun. Our guide... More

This was my first actual bush walk, definitely a winning experience. Our guide was knowledgeable and clearly passionate about the land we covered, pointing out wildlife, plants and some interesting local history. These guys have plans to cover a huge stretch of coastline in the near future and I'd highly recommend checking them out.

The coast walk was awesome! It was nice to see some local wildlife and the scenery and beaches are amazing. I'd highly recommend a swim in the river dam as a great reward after the long walk. Our tour guide had a wealth of knowledge about the local plants, wildlife and history of the park.
