Two women and a 10-year-old girl were airlifted to safety on Sunday after being stranded on a cliff in a popular tourist destination.
The trio was visiting Figure Eight Pools in the Royal National Park, south of Sydney, when they were stranded on a rock after the tide began to rise.
A Westpac rescue helicopter helped guide the two women and the young woman to safety, according to 9News.

Tourists have a long history of getting into trouble in Figure Oight Pool.
In 2016, a powerful wave hit more than 100 revelers while playing on the rocks, causing cuts, bruises and scratches on their bodies.
Last year, a 22-year-old man suffered severe chest lacerations while swimming in the park.
Two men were also treated by paramedics after claiming they were too injured to return to their car on a three-hour trip.
The Coastal Cabins Protection League and resident Helen Voysey said tourists are arriving at the site without knowledge or knowledge of ocean conditions or when it is safe when the tide is low.
& # 39; That [Royal National Park] It was dedicated to a small town in Sydney as a small recreational area, but now we have 2.5 million people coming to the park [each year]"he told ABC News.
"Access is limited and we are now flooded by visitors who are not serious hikers and who do not understand what a national park or surf is about.
The pools in Figure 8 are a hot spot for tourists, but after many injuries, the Park and Wildlife Service of New South Wales had to issue a safety checklist for visitors who planned to visit the site.
"They want to get to the place they advertise and they do not understand how dangerous the coastal strip is," he continued.
Due to the increase in injuries on the site, the NSW Parks and Wildlife Service has issued a detailed checklist for anyone planning to visit the site.
The pools should only be visited at low tide and tourists should never turn their backs on the ocean.
