The 1st of June marks the start of whale watching season, but seeing as whales don't pay much attention to our calendars, they are heading in early!
To help you catch a glimpse of these graceful creatures, Royal Coast Walks is guiding hikes along the coastline of the beautiful Royal National Park, one of Sydney's best land-based whale-watching points. You'll be guided to the perfect vantage point to spot whales on their annual migration as they frolic, breach and lobtail in the ocean.
You will also get to venture along 15km of pristine coastline, through hermit caves, past sandstone formations and the visit one of the largest Aboriginal rock engraving sites in Sydney, which features carvings of the the very creatures you'll be spotting. Along the way, you'll also learn about local history, fauna and flora and stop for a picnic lunch.
