Nice trail inside Royal NP close to Sydney, 1 hr train ride. The waterfalls are trickling but the waterholes are beautiful. I needed time away from the city and I am glad I hiked the trail. I personally prefer the coastal views. I had perfect weather at 20 celcius.

One of my “go to” hikes. Easy to get to by public transport and best to start from Heathcoat train station in my opinion. I like to end up at the pools. Very busy in summer however spring autumn and winter is perfect.

good fun, walk back up was challenging though !

The pools are heaps crowded these days and no where near as clean as they used to be .. if you go, remember to take your rubbish with you :) sunscreen also heavily pollutes the water so maybe refrain from using it as it’s quite a shady hike anyway..

just gorgeous, the swim was perfect at the bottom, alittle incline on way back up but easy-moderate.
