Australia's Figure 8 Pools Will Have You Saying "Dang, Mother Nature, Well Done"

One of Australia's best-kept secrets is starting to rise in popularity thanks to Instagram — the Figure 8 Pools. The rock pools in Sydney's Royal National Park may look man-made, but they actually formed naturally over time. Visitors have been taking the three-hour hike to visit the unique destination and jump in.

The important thing to remember is to visit the Figure 8 Pools at low tide — it's too dangerous to check them out at high or even mid tide. Waves will crash over the area and can cause injuries. Just make sure to check the national park safety alerts before making the trek. If you follow the guidelines and be careful, it's a memorable visit that's totally worth it.
