THE ROYAL NATIONAL PARK

Royal National Park

The Royal National Park is situated on the eastern coast of Australia, just under 1 hour drive from Sydney CBD. The park stretches over 15,068 ha and was established in 1879, it’s the world’s second-oldest national park after Yellowstone NP in the USA.

As one of the world’s most diverse national parks it was among the first land areas in Australia to be set aside specifically for conservation. The park’s name was changed from the National Park to “Royal National Park” in 1954 after the visit of Queen Elizabeth II.

  1. My colleague Pat used to visit the park when she was young and ride the boats and has good memories of the area. She says it has not changed at all. Again an inspiring start to Monday. Thank you
