Royal National Park
Royal National Park information
The 15,080-hectare Royal National Park was established in 1879, making it the oldest national park in the world after Yellowstone in the USA. Here you’ll find pockets of subtropical rainforest, windblown coastal scrub, sandstone gullies dominated by gum trees, fresh- and saltwater wetlands, and isolated beaches. Traditionally the home of the Dharawal people, there are also numerous Aboriginal sites and artefacts.
