Upgrades to the Royal Coast Track will deliver new visitor facilities and improved safety measures to this spectacular coastal walk south of Sydney.
What the project involves
The Royal Coast Track is a 26-kilometre track along the coast of Royal National Park. The walk allows visitors to experience a natural landscape with dramatic scenery on the edge of metropolitan Sydney. National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is upgrading the track to deliver a quality walking experience along Sydney's southern coastline.
From 22 March to 28 June 2021, a section of the Royal Coast Track at Burning Palms will be closed to allow track upgrades to be completed safely.
The closure will affect the track each week from Monday (8am) to Thursday (4pm).
The track will be open on Friday, Saturday and Sunday of each week.
Access to the Figure 8 Pools, Palm Jungle Loop Track and the Royal Coast Track between Burning Palms and Otford will be affected. Access to Figure 8 Pools from Garawarra Farm during the closure is via the Garawarra Farm Fire Trail (5 hours return, moderate – hard track).
There is no impact to accessing Figure 8 Pools from Otford along the Royal Coast Track.
Please check the alerts on the NPWS Visitor webpage before visiting to plan your trip.
