You know that saying, you never explore the city you live in? It’s so true! You sit at your desk at work and think ‘hmmm where will I travel to next’ but in reality some amazing location is just waiting for you a couple of hours away! This is me... pretty much every day. So another new year’s resolution is to explore Sydney more.
On the weekend, my friends and I went on this beautiful bush walk to Burning Palms beach, in the National Park. The most beautiful blue, clear water beach I have seen in awhile. The beach was empty, just a couple of life guards sitting under an umbrella (they have the best job). From Burning Palms beach, (about a half hour walk) are these amazing rock pools, known as the Figure 8 rock pools. WOW. What a sight. The Rock pools have all been formed naturally and are completely unique. Some of them were perfect circles others ran along the cliff face, meeting up and cascading into others. Then you had two perfect figure 8’s, deep enough to swim in or even jump in, as my goofy friends did! I recommend a visit to anyone in Sydney. Just Google Figure 8 rock pools for some instructions on the walk and the best time to visit, it is amazing!
