ROYAL NATIONAL PARK
Established in 1879, the Royal National Park is Australia’s oldest National Park. Located just 29km South from the Sydney CBD, it is Sydney’s original destination for a natural escape. Intially named “The National Park” (being the only one at the time), it was renamed The Royal National Park in 1954 when Queen Elizabeth II made a passing visit. Within its 155 km², you’ll find an amazing diversity of landscapes: from coastal cliffs, to sandy beaches, mountainous sandstone ridges to temperate rainforest.
