These small group day tours with not-for-profit Emu Trekkers are a great way to make sure your visit to Figure Eight Pools is both safe and enjoyable. 

Start by hiking part of The Coast track with like-minded adventurers. You’ll soak up fabulous views of turquoise ocean, emerald bushland and golden sand as your passionate Emu Trekker guides share their knowledge about local flora and fauna. Be sure to keep an eye out for wallabies and echidnas, and even whales during migration season.

A major highlight of each tour is a side trip to the ocean-side rock shelf where you can immerse yourself in the unique beauty of Figure Eight Pools. But there’s so much more to enjoy. You’ll visit beautiful Garie Beach, see an ancient Aboriginal shell midden, and even participate in a citizen science beach photography project.

It's a great way to meet new friends and make memories to last a lifetime. And because Emu Trekker guides volunteer their time, the money raised from your fabulous day out will go to charities supporting the education, healthcare and welfare of disadvantaged children and youth.
