This company is outstanding. Peter our guide was fantastic in that he looked after us, cooked, gave insightful information and kept a group of 10 different walkers together as a team. We never felt rushed and could spend extra time at a site if we wanted to. The overall organisation was excellent, with quality food and new tents / sleeping... More

Many thanks Diane, we're very happy you had a fantastic weekend with us. We call it comfortable camping rather than 'glamping' and we're glad we met and exceeded your expectations. We take pride in all our guides and their ability to deliver outstanding experiences. We'll ensure Peter reads your kind words. Cheers Ian Wells More

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

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.

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!

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
