Out of the City

Let’s get out of the city as fast as we can after all travellers have been picked up. Along the way your guide will give you details of the day’s itinerary, what to expect, and crack a few jokes. So sit back and relax while we play some classic Aussie tunes and take you on an incredible adventure into the Australian bush.

The Royal National Park

As we make our way through the Royal National Parks enjoy a winding scenic drive through the worlds second oldest national park only second to Yellow Stone NP. Spot native wildlife in the nearby bushes such as Kookaburras, Echidnas, and Lyre Birds.

Kayak, Canoe or Row Boat Kangaroo Creek

We will arrive at Audley boat shed which was established in 1893 for recreational activities to pick up your choice of water vehicle. Go solo in a Kayak, partner up in a Canoe or grab a Team and rowboat down Kangaroo Creek to our lunch destination. Spot the waterbirds and wildlife hiding in the bushland along these spectacular and peaceful rivers.


Karloo Pools & Uloola Pools

After a 2km, 45 minute leisurely journey down the river we will reach the fresh cool waters of the Karloo Pools. Search underwater for ancient indigenous rock paintings of animals. Jump into the creek or take a swim in the fresh clear waters – you deserve it! If you’re feeling energetic you could take a 1 hour round trip hike to the Uloola Pools for an unbeatable swim. Enjoy a delicious lunch served out for you on the creek side before heading back up river to Audley boat shed.

Wattamolla Waterfall and Beach

We head to Wattamolla Waterfall where the fresh water meets the sea. Enjoy the spectacular view from the top of the cliff or walk down to the beach. Here we will have the choice of swimming in the pool or in the ocean. If you are feeling adventurist you can take a walk to the top of the Wattamolla waterfall for even more spectacular views.

Heading Home

After a full day in the Royal National Park we will head back home. Share your stories, social media contacts, and photos with your new and wonderful friends.
