NSW Sydney - Royal National Park

Royal National Park is the world's second oldest national park - after Yellowstone in the USA.

It was created as a people's park, a place only 32 km from Sydney where city residents could escape from the pressures of urban living and enjoy themselves in a natural setting.

Packing incredible natural diversity into a relatively small area, the Royal offers riverside picnics, great surf beaches, clifftop heathland walks, rainforest cycle tracks, and much more
